NJ 54080 29780 A watching brief was undertaken, 14 October 2013 – 21 April 2015, on the line of a fire main trench across the N lawn at Leith Hall. A shallow trench, possibly a hedge line, 18m N of the wall of the hall, may relate to gardens shown on an estate plan of 1758. The edging wall of a 19th-century garden bed and a path shown on plans of late 18th- and 19th-century date were also recorded.
