Mayfield Baths – Archaeological Excavations

Archaeological Excavations

During 2020 The Mayfield Partnership began work on a new 6.5 acre public park and the remains of Mayfield Baths were uncovered. A team of archaeologists from the University of Salford led by Andy Radford, Site Supervisor, Salford Archaeology, excavated the site. Some Victorian tiles from the building were preserved to be incorporated into the new park.

The archaeologists used 3D scanning and low level drone photography to produce an accurate, detailed record of the findings which are to be combined with historical documents and CAD software to produce digital drawings for the ‘preservation record’.
