Following the acquisition of Axwell Hall, a Grade II* listed building (IoE Number 303771), by Development and Regeneration Excellence (Northern) Ltd (DARE), who
proposed to restore the house and convert it to residential apartments, an archaeological building recording programme was recommended by Jennifer Morrison, the Tyne and Wear Archaeology Officer. This was to assess the significance of the building, provide a permanent record of the structure prior to redevelopment and to inform the proposed conservation and conversion process.
Historical research aimed at providing better understanding of the development of the building was also recommended.
The investigation comprised a detailed survey of the building in order to provide an outline of its form, development, and phases of alteration. Following the completion of this investigation recommendations for further investigation were made, including further inspection of the rear wing and terrace during any future development. It was
recommended that conversion of the building be carried out with due regard for the character and importance of the house (OA North 2004).
