Abstract

This document aims to assess the archaeological significance and provide a heritage assessment of five separate land holdings on the fringe of the village of Chipping in Lancashire, and provide an archaeological perspective on the significance of the areas and their heritage assets, and thus inform a hybrid planning application that is being prepared for a proposed development. The first area concerns a Grade II listed building, Kirk Mill (centred on NGR 361975 443612), a former water-powered textile mill that survives largely intact, albeit is a poor condition. The detailed development proposals aim to repair and adapt this significant heritage asset for long-term use as a hotel and gastronomic pub, associated with the second proposed development area. This second area focuses on a former chair factory (centred on NGR 362090 443515) that was built in the mid-twentieth century, and is currently derelict. Detailed design proposals allow for the demolition of these redundant industrial buildings, and the erection of a new hotel and spa, with a purpose-built wedding centre and crèche. Additional hotel accommodation will be provided in an altered nineteenth-century stone barn that currently lies on the northern edge of the factory complex, which is to be converted for use as hotel cottages. The design proposals also allow for the construction of a trailhead centre on the former factory site. In addition, an outline planning application concerns two areas of proposed residential development, and a new cricket pitch and associated facilities.
