Abstract

As part of a major scheme of regeneration and repair works at Ditherington Flax Mill in Shrewsbury, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Fielden Clegg Bradley Studios, acting on behalf of English Heritage, to carry out a programme of archaeological building recording. The work was targeted on the South Silo (centred on NGR 349824 313812), a barley-storage silo that was added to the site
in 1951.
Regeneration propsals allow for the repair of most of the buildings on the site, although the South Silo is beyond economic repair and has thus been recommended for demolition. In order to mitigate the ultimate loss of the structure, it was recommended by English Heritage that an archaeological building investigation of the South Silo was carried out prior to its demolition.
The building investigation was intended to be commensurate with an English Heritage Level 3-type survey, which would comprise a detailed photographic record, measured survey and written description of the South Silo prior to its proposed demolition.
