Abstract

Investigations at Pecket Well Mill (NGR SD 9977 2968), located in the hamlet of Pecket Well near Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire, have added to and expanded, a previous survey carried out in 1988 by the Royal Commission for the Historic Monuments of England (RCHME 1988 Appendix II). The present survey, carried out in 2005 by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) is part of a planning application (Planning application Nos. 05/00098/CON & 03/1805/LBC) by Mango Developments Ltd to convert the mill to private dwellings. The survey has highlighted certain aspects of the nature of the construction and layout of various parts of the mill. Particular attention was paid to the Boiler House, the Engine House, and the Weaving Sheds. Pecket Well Mill probably contained a single Lancashire Boiler and a single beam engine, which continued to be in situ until at least the 1960s. This arrangement was either supplanted by, or was supplemental to, electrification of the power supply, which probably occurred before c 1927. It is possible that both the boiler and engine were in use well into the twentieth century. The survey revealed that the general layout of the engine house had remained little changed at least since the 1960s when the engine and boiler were photographed in situ.
