Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Sinclair Knight Merz to undertake an archaeological desk-based assessment of an area of land being considered for future redevelopment at Halsnead Park, Knowsley, Merseyside
(centred on NGR SJ 792 900). The study area is currently designated as adopted Green Belt, and includes a large area of agricultural land, pockets of isolated woodland, a caravan park, a lake, a recreation ground, a cemetery and a former garden centre.
The desk-based assessment, undertaken in January 2006, covered a radius of 0.5km from the centre of the study area, and included a visit to the Merseyside Record Office
and consultation of the Merseyside Sites and Monument Record and OA North’s library. In addition, a rapid visual inspection of the site was undertaken. Six sites with
Statutory Designation were identified: Sites 02, 05, 06, 19, 20 and 21 are all Grade II Listed Buildings or structures.
