Planning consent has been granted for the conversion of Carr Mills, Meanwood Road,Leeds (NGR SE 3001 3562), into private dwellings (Planning Application No26/152/03FU and 26/153/03/LI). The planning authority had omitted to include a
condition requiring archaeological recording in the planning consent but the developer(Mandale Developments Ltd) decided that because of the mills historic significance,they would commission an appropriate archaeological building investigation.
The building investigation (RCHME Level III) was carried out by Oxford Archaeology North (OA North), following a written specification provided by West Yorkshire Archaeology Service Advisory Service (WYASAS) (Appendix I). Previous investigations include a desk-based assessment which was compiled by Northern Archaeological Associates (NAA) in 2003 (NAA 2003). The aims of the survey were to record by means of photographs and annotated and measured drawings, any
evidence for the original and subsequent form and functions of the buildings. A further aim was to analyse and interpret the buildings as an integrated system and discuss layout and process flow.
The buildings under investigation are the two main ranges at the core of the mill complex, Ranges A and B, which were joined at an acute angle to form an ‘L-shaped’ structure. Most of the other buildings have already been demolished and other, new blocks have taken their place. The development of the mill will entail the complete gutting of both Ranges A and B.
