In August 2010, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Buttress Fuller Alsop Williams (BFAW), acting on behalf of Burnley Borough Council, to undertake a heritage appraisal of several historical buildings situated in the Weavers’ Triangle area of Burnley (centred on NGR SD 83452 32551). This part of the town forms the core of the Canalside Conservation Area, which is widely recognised as being one of the most important historic industrial areas in the North West.
The heritage appraisal was required to inform current proposals for the repair, conservation and re-use of several important historical buildings in the vicinity of Sandygate, including Neptune House, Slater’s Terrace and the adjacent warehouse and engine house, Sandygate Mill and weaving shed, the former Waterloo Hotel, Victoria Mill and weaving shed, the site of Sandygate Shed, and a former textile-machinery workshop on the west side of Wiseman Street. The study was required specifically to provide an archaeological perspective on the relative significance of these buildings. All of the buildings considered in the heritage appraisal are of considerable historical and archaeological significance, although some components are of especial significance, whilst some elements actually detract from the heritage value of the area.
