Standing Building Recording (6 May 2010 - 13 May 2010)

NJ 93450 09097, NJ 93148 09523 and NJ 93193 09496 (cottage) An evaluation was carried out 6–13 May 2010 on two areas of the development site. Trenches at the N end of the site revealed part of the channel and the base of the weir for the water power to the 19th-century mill. A trench at the S end of the site cut through deep deposits of dumped ash and cinder from the mill. A standing building survey was undertaken on Don Cottage, a Category B listed building which had been severely damaged by fire. Built in the 1830s/1840s, it had been a two-storied harled brick villa with French windows at ground floor level and a balcony at 1st floor level supported by rustic style timber columns.
