Abstract

Between January 2004 and March 2005, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertook part of an on-going programme of archaeological investigation of several sites in the Ancoats area of Manchester (centred at SJ 8533 9852). The work is being conducted in advance of, and during, a major new development, which is being delivered by The New Islington Client Group. Ancoats was formerly a key industrial district, and is now recognised to be of immense historical and archaeological significance on account of its pioneering role in the development of the steam-powered textile industry. In order to secure archaeological interests, a condition was attached to the planning application for the new development which, in the first instance, required a programme of archaeological evaluation. This revealed that two sites in particular, known as Salvin’s Factory and New Islington Mill, had retained extensive buried remains. Following consultation with the Greater Manchester Assistant County Archaeologist, it was recommended that further archaeological excavation was required on these two sites in advance of development.
