Abstract

Everton Football Club have submitted proposals (planning application 02/00823/FUL) to Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council for the development of an Academy and Training Facility at the site of Finch Farm, 3 Finch Lane, Halewood, Knowsley, Merseyside NGR SJ 459 849 (Fig 1). The development area comprises an enclosed trapezoid area of agricultural land of roughly 24 ha, centred on the buildings of Finch Farm. Following preparation of a project design and costs to meet a written scheme of investigation compiled by RPS Planning and Environment Ltd, Oxford Archaeology North (OA North) were commissioned to undertake an archaeological evaluation at the site. Oxford Archaeology was commissioned to undertake an archaeological buildings survey on the nineteenth century brick-built structures at Finch Farm, prior to their demolition ahead of redevelopment. The evaluation was undertaken over a period of three weeks between June and July 2005 and involved the excavation and recording of 24 trial trenches in two phases (Fig 2). The archaeological buildings survey was conducted over the course of a week within the same period, the results of which are detailed in a separate Oxford Archaeology report.
