Welcome to the web site of
Mellor Archaeological Trust
Following the discovery of an Iron Age ditch in the garden of The Old Vicarage next to Mellor Church, the Trust was formed in 2000.
Excavations from 1998 to 2009 led to finds from Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, Iron Age, Romano-British and Medieval times. Visit this website to learn more – and go on to read about our current work on the Bronze Age burial site of Shaw Cairn, where an amber necklace was found, and the historic Mellor Mill, which was built in 1790-92 and burnt out in 1892.
Other items cover the history of the whole Parish of Mellor and surveys of some of its historic buildings – plus news of events and publications, and how to get involved.
