Introduction

Plot 3, Jetting Street, Milltown, Ashover, Derbyshire. Historic Building Recording of Retaining Walls (OASIS ID: archaeol5-371921)

Archaeological Research Services Ltd was commissioned in February 2019 to undertake a historic building recording of the heritage structures in the retaining walls at Plot 3, Jetting Street, Ashover, Derbyshire. The historic building recording was undertaken as a condition of planning permission prior to the construction of one detached dwelling on Plot 3.

Four main phases of construction have been identified at the site. The first relates to the survival of a limekiln archway of later 19th century date. In the second phase the site formed the location of the loading facility for Miltown Quarry which operated between the late 19th century and the 1930s, when a screen/crusher building was constructed on top of the earlier limekiln archway. A subsequent phase of development comprised the blocking of the access route to the quarry which is evident in the south western retaining wall. The latest phase is evident along the north western retaining wall where there is a series of recessed grooves which relate to hoppers and chutes used for loading waggons which formed part of the Ashover Light Railway’s mineral line which served Milltown Quarry.
