In 2006, a planning application was submitted to Salford City Council for the demolition and redevelopment of Chorlton Fold Farm, situated in Monton, near Eccles, Greater Manchester (centred on NGR: SD 7694 0001). The farm had formed part of a hamlet known as Chorlton Fold since at least the eighteenth century, and it was anticipated that this site might also contain buried remains of archaeological significance.
In view of the archaeological potential of the site, the Greater Manchester County Archaeologist, in consultation with the Salford Conservation Officer, recommended that an archaeological condition was attached to the planning consent for the development. In the first instance, it was recommended that an archaeological survey of the extant buildings should be undertaken, together with appropriate historical research. This phase of work was completed by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) in 2006, and the full results form the subject of a separate report (OA North
2007a). Once the buildings had been demolished, it was then recommended that a programme of field evaluation should be undertaken, in order to assess the nature, extent, and significance of any buried archaeological remains in advance of the proposed redevelopment of this site. This evaluation was undertaken by OA North in August 2007, and it revealed a series of buried remains which were considered to be
archaeologically significant.
