Abstract

In July 2011, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Salford City Council to undertake a programme of archaeological building investigation of properties on the corner of Chapel Street and Greengate, Salford (centred on NGR SJ 83714 98790). The work was required in advance of a major programme of regeneration and redevelopment that is centred on Greengate. The redevelopment scheme necessitates the demolition of a group of five properties at the junction of Chapel Street and Greengate, which lies in the medieval core of Salford. In order to secure archaeological interests, the County Archaeologist for Greater Manchester recommended that redevelopment was accompanied by an appropriate programme of archaeological investigation. In the first instance, it was recommended that the five properties were subject to an archaeological building investigation in advance of demolition. In addition to providing a permanent record of the structures prior to their ultimate loss, it was also anticipated that the investigation would inform an understanding of the potential for below-ground archaeological remains on the site.
