Oxford Archaeology (OA) North was commissioned by Pegasus Group on behalf of Sandway Homes Ltd to undertake an archaeological trial trench evaluation at the site of a proposed residential development on land to the
east of Buckley Hill Lane, Sefton, Merseyside (NGR: SD 34954 00324).
The work was undertaken as a condition of a planning application (planning ref. DC/2020/01853). In consultation with Merseyside Environmental Advisory Service (MEAS), it was established that an archaeological evaluation would be
required to inform whether additional archaeological fieldwork would be necessary. This was due to the potential for structural remains surviving relating to eighteenth century houses. Pegasus Group produced a written scheme of investigation (WSI) and OA North were subsequently
commissioned to undertake the fieldwork, which was undertaken over two days; 14th and 15th April 2021.
Only one of the two proposed trenches was excavated, Trench 1, due to the presence of a number of services in the proposed location of Trench 2. There were minimal archaeological remains identified within Trench 1, those
identified likely related to the ‘Z-block’ high-rise flats which had been constructed in the 1960s and demolished in 2007, with the targeted eighteenth century remains having been completely truncated. As such, there was no requirement for further archaeological works on the site from MEAS.
