Summary / Description

This report summarises the results of an archaeological evaluation and work in the grounds surrounding Newton Hall, a cruck building in Tameside, Greater Manchester (Map Ref SJ 9420 9580), carried out during October 2008. The work was funded by the Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council as part of the ongoing Tameside Archaeological Survey with the aims of gaining a better understanding of the outlying farm complex associated with the hall; attempting to assess its date of construction, and to place it in context within the region and with other similar sites. The investigation concentrated on the north-eastern, the southeastern areas of the hall site and immediately off the northern end of the hall where cartographic evidence indicated a complex of structures dating from before 1840s and to the late 19th century.
