Plot L Ltd has devising proposals for the redevelopment of land situated in the Shudehill area of Manchester (centred at NGR 384420 398960). Known as Angel Gardens, the proposals allow for the erection of a multi-storey building and associated infrastructure and landscaping works, which will inevitably necessitate considerable earth-moving works.
At an early stage in the design process, Plot L Ltd commissioned Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) to undertake a desk-based assessment of the proposed development area, which identified a total of 11 non-designated heritage assets within the boundary of the proposed development. These included the site of the Manchester Iron Foundry, which was established within the eastern grounds of Arkwright’s Mill in c 1840. This site was rebuilt as the iron works of Baxendale & Co, a firm of engineers and plumbers merchants, which occupied several premises in the Miller Street area during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
