Abstract

In December 2012, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Prospect (GB) Ltd to carry out an archaeological desk-based assessment of land at Crossacres Road at Sharston, in the Wythenshawe area of Greater Manchester (centred on NGR SJ 83840 87892). The assessment was required to inform and support the full reserved matters planning application for the redevelopment of the site, which allows for the erection of 15 new residential properties. The principal aim of the assessment was to identify, as far as possible, the nature and significance of the sub-surface archaeological resource within the study area, and was required to inform and support a planning application for a proposed development of the site. The study area is situated on the eastern fringe of Wythenshawe, and lies some 10km to the south of Manchester city centre. The district, which incorporates the areas of Sharston ,Baguley, Benchill, Peel Hall, Newall Green, Woodhouse Park, Moss Nook, Northenden and Northern Moor, formed part of Cheshire until 1931, when it was transferred to the City of Manchester as part of a massive programme of housing development that had begun in the 1920s, signalling the widespread development of the area.
