Following plans to redevelop the former Pug Mill (SD 3555 8470), at Backbarrow
Ironworks, Lancaster University Archaeological Unit (LUAU) was invited to undertake
an assessment of artefacts relating to the former ironworks which were known to exist
within the building. The Pug Mill is now a turbine house and the development involved
the refurbishment of the building with new turbines. The survey was at the request of
John Hodgson (Archaeologist for the Lake District National Park Authority) in
conjunction with English Heritage and was required to inform future decisions
concerning more appropriate long-term storage for the artefacts. These artefacts were
believed to include a number of wooden moulds and iron castings, together with a
charging barrow.
