Abstract

The Defence Estates Environmental Support Team requested that Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) undertake an investigation of several buildings at the former Kinmel Park Army Camp, Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire (SH 9947 7502), prior to the proposed redevelopment of the site. A planning application had been submitted to Denbighshire County Council (Planning Application reference M40/2005/1500/PO) for the redevelopment of the site for housing and employment uses. This would necessitate the demolition of the buildings and, as a result, a brief for an English Heritage Level III-type investigation of the buildings was issued by the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust (CPAT). The initial stage of the building investigation comprised a desk-based assessment and map regression analysis of the study area. These elements were undertaken in April 2007, prior to the commencement of fieldwork. In total, three sites were identified within the proposed development boundary through inspection of the Historic Environment Record (HER) and the National Monuments Record of Wales (NMRW).The sites comprised the Kinmel Army Camp (Site 1), an Old Kiln (Site 2) and Bodelwyddan Mine (Site 3).
