Thanks Mark,
indeed you found the exact problem.

A person before me installed mailman but didn't complete the task.
I re-installed with a clean setup but I didn't/don't fully understand all the settings.
in the mm_cfg.py file the setting for public archives was set to "/pipermail/"
This unfortunately was what the setting for the default_server.conf file was as well.
I must have just assumed they were the same and correct, obviously not.

Really appreciate your help

I think you have an incorrect setting in mm_cfg.py for
PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL. The default setting for this (in Defaults.py is

PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'http://%(hostname)s/pipermail/%(listname)s'

Perhaps you changed this for some reason and left off the /%(listname)s
