New Brighton - New Archaeology Records

25/09/2019  |  3 p.m.

New Brighton


The land to build New Brighton was purchased in 1830 and it was hoped the town would rival the regency splendor of Brighton on the south coast. By the 1930's the town had the tallest building in England, the largest lido in the country and a fabulous pleasure pier. Sadly little of this seaside splendor now survives.

Join Citizan on the New Brighton promenade to learn how to record what remains of one of the Mersey's most prominent seaside resorts. You'll learn how to use our mobile phone app and about the work of the Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeology Network to record seafront archaeology.

Meet us at the shelter by the entrance to the Perch Rock car-park on Marine Promenade. The session will last for an hour and half and will be located on the prom and beach, so sensible footwear and weather appropriate clothing is advised. You will not need any specialist equipment for this session, we will provide everything necessary.

This event is free but booking is essential.  You can book tickets for this event here
