The project is to be undertaken by Wessex Archaeology on behalf of Derwent Students, Sheffield 3 and BSRE.
Notes on Access
There is no parking on site, but some on street parking close by. In addition the Shalesmoor tram stop is only a 2 min walk away from the site. Welfare facilities are available on site. Access into the main area of the listed building is not problematic, however, access into the three cellars is via steep and narrow steps, with no disabled access available.
This site is not suitable for anyone who finds stairs difficult or is claustrophobic, as the cellars are a confined space.
