Abstract:
The report describes the results of a watching brief conducted during groundworks for the construction of a new car showroom on land adjacent to Bromborough Court Moat, Pool Lane, Bromborough, Wirral, Merseyside. Bromborough Court is a Scheduled Ancient Monument (Number 17955) composed of the moat and two fishponds, one of which is within the moated area and the other to the west of the moat. Bromborough Court Moat is almost certainly the site of Bromborough Manor which was occupied from at least the 13th century when it was owned by the abbot of St Werburgh's, Chester (now Chester Cathedral). A new brick built house was constructed in 1680 on the eastern side of the enclosure and may have replaced some or all of the earlier structures known to have occupied the site. The house was demolished in 1969 and the site partly built over. A number of previous investigations have taken place on the site including trial trenching, watching briefs and geophysical surveys. However, little evidence has been found for archaeological deposits. No significant archaeological deposits were found during this project other than surface scatters of 19th and 20th century pottery and a possible ditch west of the fishpond, no archaeological deposits were present. The finds consisted of domestic pottery found in topsoil, probably the result of the casual dispersal of domestic refuse and is typical of assemblages found on former agricultural land within the Merseyside area.
