Nuffield Health is developing proposals for a new private hospital and integrated well being facility on the site of the former Manchester Metropolitan University Elizabeth Gaskell Campus at Hathersage Road in Manchester (centred on NGR 385451 395812). Part of this proposal allows for the demolition of the Elizabeth Gaskell College Building, a structure erected in 1912 to house the Manchester College of Domestic Science. In order to secure archaeological interests, Nuffield Health commissioned Oxford Archaeology North to undertake an historic building investigation prior to demolition. The historic building investigation was carried out in May 2015, and was consistent with an English Heritage level II-type survey. This allowed for the preparation of measured survey drawings, annotated with archaeological detail, coupled with a written description of the building.
