Cheshire County Council has granted outline planning permission for a redevelopment of Ingersley Vale Mill at Ingersley Vale, Bollington, Cheshire (centred on NGR SD 942 773). The proposed scheme of works allows for the demolition of several buildings surrounding the central spinning mill and waterwheel house, which are to be renovated for re-use within the proposed housing development.
In order to secure archaeological interests, the Development Control Officer (Archaeology) responsible for Cheshire East recommended that a programme of archaeological investigation was carried out to support and inform the planning
application. It was recommended that the scope of archaeological investigation should comprise an English Heritage Level I-type survey of the majority of the buildings, coupled with an appropriate level of historical research. This was followed by an archaeological watching brief that was to monitor the first phase of demolition.
Following the necessary demolitions, an English Heritage Level II-type survey of the spinning block and waterwheel house was also undertaken.
