In April 2014, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by UK Mills Ltd to undertake a heritage assessment of Galgate Silk Mills, which lie on the north-eastern fringe of Galgate in the Lancashire borough of Lancaster (centred on NGR 348520 455740). The heritage assessment was required to inform and support current proposals for the repair and conservation of the historic five-storey mill, which lies at the heart of the Galgate Silk Mills complex, and is afforded statutory designation as a Grade II listed building.
The development proposals allow for the creation of student apartments on the upper floors of the mill, together with a small museum dedicated to the area’s historic silk industry, a café and student facilities. Government policy set out in the National Planning Policy Framework requires that proposed changes to the historic environment are based on a clear understanding of significance of any heritage assets and their setting that are affected.
