Abstract

Merseyside Archaeology Service (MAS) have requested that an archaeological evaluation be undertaken over a section of a proposed road widening scheme at Henderson Green, Edge Hill, Liverpool (centred at NGR SJ 3644 9048). The site of the proposed development is potentially within the broader area of the Williamson Tunnels, around Edge Hill and at the northern end of Mason Street. There was a possibility that there are, as yet unconfirmed, tunnels within the extent of the proposed development. Consequently, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) was commissioned by Birse Civils Limited to carry out the work, which was undertaken in June 2008. Two trenches, each measuring 10m long by 2m wide, were excavated in order to understand the nature and development of the site and investigate its archaeological potential. No identifiable remains of the Williamson Tunnels were encountered during any part of the investigation, although a layer of made ground consisting of rubble and concrete suggests some post-medieval activity may be present on site. The absence of any significant archaeological features on the site indicates that the proposed work would have a negligible archaeological impact, and it is not envisaged that any further investigation will be required.
