Abstract

Proposals are being collated for the redevelopment of the CRODA site at Bromborough Pool, to the north of Bromborough on the Wirral (centred on NGR SJ 34558 84494). The current masterplan is for mixed use development, including residential and employment areas, together with riverside restoration and green space to the immediate north of the Bromborough Pool village. Cascade Consulting commissioned Oxford Archaeology (OA) to undertake a desk-based assessment of the site to assess the potential impact of the proposed development on the archaeological resource. This was carried out by OA North in June and July 2011. The study area for the desk-based assessment comprises an area 1km in radius centred on the proposed development. The focus of the desk-based assessment was buried archaeological remains, as the built heritage (including 17 listed buildings within the proposed development area) is being examined in a separate report. The desk-based assessment comprised a search of both published and unpublished records held by the National Monuments Record (NMR), the Merseyside Historic Environment Record (HER) in Liverpool, the Wirral Archives Service (WAS) in Birkenhead, and the archives and library held at OA North.
