Abstract:
In April and May 2012, ArcHeritage undertook desk-based research, walkover and detailed earthwork surveys at the site of Farnley Mill, Farnley Tyas. The surveys were required to record the extent of survival of features relating to the mill, its water management system and associated cottages and outbuildings. ArcHeritage were commissioned by the East Peak Innovation Partnership and Farnley Estates Ltd to undertake the project. The results demonstrate that significant remains of the mill survive, revealing most of the footprint of the mill buildings as well as several standing walls associated with the 1790s mill structure, the wheel pit and the steam engine setting. Other features include a gas holder base associated with a short-lived gas works at the site, well-preserved remains of the water management system, and features associated with managers' cottages and outbuildings. The remains of the 18th-century mill and power systems are considered to be of Regional archaeological significance, whilst the other features identified are of Local archaeological significance. The archaeological resource is currently at risk from tree roots across the site, whilst standing and pooling water is considered to be a threat to floor deposits at the western side of the mill.
