A fabric survey was undertaken at Basingill Powder Works (SD 507 867), near
Levens, Cumbria in February 1996 by Lancaster University Archaeological Unit
(LUAU) on behalf of the National Rivers Authority. The aim of the survey was to
record two blast walls which had become unstable and needed to be made safe by
controlled demolition. The walls separate a series of three powder mills, which
for the most part will not be directly affected by the controlled demolition of the
upper sections of the blast walls. It was therefore agreed, in conjunction with the
county archaeologist, that the fabric survey be limited to a record of the blast wall
