Abstract:
Ecus Ltd. were commissioned by Sheffield City Council (SCC) to undertake an archaeological watching brief during works to the dam and mill pond within the Scheduled area of Abbeydale Works (SM no. SY 1039, and National List No. 1004822) at Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, Abbeydale Road South, Sheffield, located at SK 32562 81953. The archaeological watching brief was required as a condition of Scheduled Monument Consent (SMC ref S00072815) for the proposed works and undertaken in accordance with a Written Scheme of Investigation agreed with English Heritage Principal Inspector of Ancient Monuments. The principal aim of the works was to address a long standing leak through the dam into the buildings behind. The initial plan was to create a temporary dam across the mill pond, allowing the northern end to be drained, and then to install a liner. As the project progressed various problems were encountered during the drain down of the pond resulted in the scaling back of the original solution. The archaeological watching brief was undertaken between 13/06/14 and 23/10/14, monitoring the excavation of four test pits, stripping for an access track, and observations during the installation of the new penstocks. Observations made during the course of the watching brief evidence of fixings for an earlier structure on the southern penstock, and identified evidence for the construction of the dam wall and bank. Whilst outside of the monitoring area, the presence of remains of possible structures within the mill pond was also noted.
