Summary / Description

This report presents the results of an archaeological building survey of Whitelands Leather Works, Whitelands, Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, Greater Manchester (centred SJ 9420 9869). The site was situated to the east of Whitelands road and to the south of the disused Huddersfield Canal. Whitelands works consisted of a four story building with adjoining single story sheds to the east. Although buildings were noted on the 1840s OS map there appeared to have been a significant rebuild dating to 1868. During the late 20th century the site was reduced in size with residential buildings constructed to the east and south of the works. The adjoining sheds were partially demolished in the late 20th century and the works was finally demolished in 2003. This survey was undertaken in conjunction with the ongoing Tameside archaeological survey.
