Abstract:
The report describes the results of an archaeological watching brief conducted during building works at Redstone Close, Meols between 7 and 8 January 2016. The project was undertaken during the conversion of an out building attached to the barn into domestic accommodation and involved monitoring the excavation of internal floors within the existing structure. The project found that the cobbled floors within the building had been laid during the late 19th or early 20th century and sealed a layer or made-ground consisting of sands and building debris. Post-settings cut in to these deposits probably related to internal divisions within the building or to a structure pre-dating its construction but were unlikely to pre-date c.1850. In general the finds assemblage was typical of what would commonly be expected on a small farmstead such as Redstone Close. Some elements, in particular the glass, suggest that the site has been occupied since at least the early 18th century and possibly longer. Three fragments of earthenware have been provisionally identified as sections of sugar mould dating to the late 18th or early 19th century. However, these are very unlikely to relate to sugar processing on or near the present site.
