Welcome to the website of Bidston Community Archaeology

The BCA home base is Tam O'Shanters Farm on Bidston Hill, Wirral.

Fifty metres from the farm, where the woodland starts, is the pigfield, our dig site.

The site will be open to the public on
Sunday 8 September 2024
11am to 4pm
as part of Wirral Heritage Open Days

We are excavating a farm that stood in the field and have unearthed
some structures that are, as yet, unexplained.

Our latest find is a circular stone structure which we believe is a horse gin (aka horse engine).

It is now shown on the Merseyside Heritage Environment Record - www.heritagegateway.org.uk/Gateway/Results_Single.aspx?uid=4376872&resourceID=1970
