Other details

DescriptionFrom September to December 2014 Big Heritage C.I.C. and community volunteers undertook five evaluation trenches within the interior of the site known as Bromborough Courthouse Moated Site and Fishponds, Wirral (centred on NGR: SJ 34496 84189). Permission was granted by the land owners, the Land Trust and Historic England (then English Heritage) to undertake excavation. Joanne Kirton, on behalf of Big Heritage C.I.C., was granted Scheduled Monument Consent (Ref: S00089251). This work was undertaken as part of the larger HLF funded 'Discovering Bromborough 2: Moats and Manors’, a community archaeology project managed by Big Heritage C.I.C. The intention of the project was to complete a second year of test pitting around the core of Bromborough village and undertake an evaluation of the potential for archaeology on the courthouse site, whilst providing training for local community volunteers and other interested parties.
