In May 2017, Salford Archaeology was commissioned by Evans Dakota Ltd to carry out an archaeological evaluation of a site situated off Ducie Street in the Piccadilly area of Manchester (centred on NGR SJ 84843 98193). The work was required to inform and support a planning application (Planning Ref 114818/FO/2016) for the proposed Dakota Hotel Development. The evaluation was carried out in the light of the conclusions drawn from an archaeological assessment of the site, and comprised the excavation of four trenches, which were placed across the footprint of a stable block and small industrial building associated with the Rochdale Canal, a row of 18th-/19th-century workers’ housing and an associated public house. The evaluation was intended to determine the presence, extent, depth, state of preservation and significance of the archaeological resource to enable informed recommendations to be made for the future treatment of any surviving remains, in line with the guidance provided by the National Planning Policy Framework.
