Abstract:
Ecus Ltd. were commissioned by Sheffield City Council in October 2013 to prepare an Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment for the mill pond at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Abbeydale Road South, Sheffield, located at SK 32562 81953.. The site visit and research for the project was undertaken in October 2013. The mill pond likely dates to the late 18th century, when it was expanded from an earlier head-goit with origins in the late 17th century. It is likely that the fabric of the dam walls surrounding the pond were maintained and possibly rebuilt as required over its 150 years of use, although the majority of fabric appears to be of at least 19th century date. There potential for buried archaeological remains of significant evidential value to be encountered within the mill pond. The highest potential is considered to comprise archaeological material within the silts of the pond including architectural fragments, grinding stones, as well as industrial and domestic refuge accumulated during the operation of the works. Geophysical survey and probing whilst the dam was drained in 2001-4 indicated there is potential for remains of former structures to be present within the mill pond. The structures, and any associated features and deposits, are of particular significance in understanding the early development of the works, likely predating the expansion of the pond in 1777. Consequently there is also considered to be a low potential for remains relating to medieval structures and deposits of early industrial or agricultural activity that predate the works.
