Abstract:
The report describes the results of an archaeological watching brief conducted during the excavation of hand-dug test-pits excavated for site investigation works relating to improvements to the flood defences on the Downholland Brook east of Formby. The results of this fieldwork confirmed the findings of boreholes drilled in 2005 which seemed to show that the embankment was largely constructed of a mixture of loose silts and soft silty sand. No trace of the postulated stone reinforcement was found, though this may simply be a reflection of the relatively small size of the test-pits.
