Abstract:
The report describes the results of a programme of trial trenching at Kenilworth Gardens, Upton, Wirral. The fieldwork was undertaken on behalf of the client in advance of the construction of new housing on the site which lies adjacent to the site of a medieval church which is a scheduled ancient monument. A total of five trenches were excavated, two of which showed that the eastern half of the site had been extensively disturbed during demolition of the flats which formerly occupied the site. The other three trenches were located on the western half of the site which was much less disturbed. A small group of post-holes and pits were present in these trenches, though all of these could be confidently dated to the 19th century or later. A single flint blade and a fragment of unworked burnt flint provide evidence of human activity in the area but are unlikely to relate to below ground archaeological deposits.
