In August 2011, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, acting on behalf of Manchester City Football Club, to carry out a programme of archaeological investigation at the site of the former OMG Works in the Clayton area of Manchester (centred on NGR SJ 87417 98277). The archaeological investigation was required as part of a wider scheme of works intended to
remediate and make safe the site in advance of the ultimate redevelopment of the area.
In the first instance, the programme of archaeological investigation of the OMG Works was intended to comprise the excavation of eight evaluation trenches. The initial
trenches were intended to identify and characterise the surviving evidence for a range of heritage assets recognised on historical mapping of the site, and allow an informed
decision to be reached regarding the need for further excavation to record buried remains that would be destroyed during the course of development groundworks.
