Rok Construction is carrying out a scheme of redevelopment of land off Denton Lane in Crossley, Oldham (centred on SD 90626 04723). The site is one of several areas that are being considered for redevelopment as part of the Gateways to Oldham Scheme, which aims to provide new and refurbished social housing on five sites across the borough, including an area off Denton Lane.
As an initial stage in the development process, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) carried an archaeological desk-based assessment of the site, which concluded that the site has some potential to contain buried remains of archaeological interest pertaining to a possible medieval settlement, and several nineteenth-century industrial
sites, namely two nineteenth-century collieries. In the light of the conclusions drawn by the desk-based assessment, the Assistant County Archaeologist for Greater Manchester, who provides planning advice on archaeological issues to Oldham Council, recommended that a scheme of intrusive archaeological investigation of the site is carried out in advance of development.
