Abstract:
An archaeological excavation conducted on the site of Cabin Hill Farm, a 19th century farmhouse situated at the southern end of St Lukes Church Road, Formby, Merseyside. The project was undertaken as a community archaeology event in partnership with the Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership. The site is located to the south-west of Formby in an area of woodland and sand dunes. Map and census evidence suggests that the farmhouse was constructed sometime between 1850 -1861 as a single storey thatched cottage in longhouse form. In the early 20th century Cabin Hill was occupied by Joseph Formby who is believed to have farmed asparagus in nearby fields until the late 1930s. The area was heavily militarized during World War II and it is likely that this was when the farm was abandoned. The site fell into decay after the war but was periodically occupied by the homeless. It is shown partially roofless on a sketch drawn in 1959 and was finally demolished in c. 1980. There was some evidence which suggests that the existing building may have been built over earlier foundations, possibly dating to the 17th/18th centuries.
