Summary / Description

The Centre for Applied Archaeology, University of Salford (CfAA) was commissioned by English Cities Fund to undertake an archaeological excavation on land located off Stanley Street, Central Salford (centred on SJ8310 9837), as part of a scheme known as Central Salford Regeneration. An archaeological evaluation was carried out on plot B1 in June 2013 (Reader 2013), which revealed the substantial remains of New Bailey Prison. The open area excavations comprised of five joining trenches, with two ‘islands’ within the excavation area, according to the building footprint plan. This was located within the north-western corner of New Bailey Prison, which consisted of male felon cells, workshops and yard areas which were constructed from 1815 onwards. Seven phases of activity were identified ranging from possible Medieval/Post-Medieval ploughing to modern day.
