Abstract

Seddon Construction Ltd is to carry out the redevelopment of land at Hopes Carr in Stockport (centred on NGR SJ 8912 90262). The site was occupied formerly by a number of industrial premises, the archaeological importance of which has been highlighted in a desk-based assessment of the site that was produced by the University of Manchester Archaeological Unit in 2004. In order to secure archaeological interests, the County Archaeologist for GreaterManchester, who provides planning advice for Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, recommended that a programme of archaeological investigation was carried out in advance of development. In particular, it was recommended that the footprint of an eighteenth-century textile factory that is listed in a document of 1785 as forming part of the Carr Mill complex was targeted for intrusive investigation, and the remains of extant walls and associated structures were subject to measured survey. In March 2011, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Seddon Construction Ltd to carry out the required scheme of works. The precise scope of works was specified in a Project Design that was devised by OA North, and approved by the County Archaeologist for Greater Manchester.
