Watching Brief

Type Watching Brief


NT 469 733 I conducted an archaeological watching brief in June 2006 during the excavation of a central pipeline trench in the wayleave for the Haddington Pipeline Reinforcement. Four pits were identified and recorded in the course of the watching-brief. Modern pottery was found in two of the four pits, with one also containing modern red brick. The nearby location of the abandoned Gladsmuir Tile and Brick Works, and the pottery and bricks found association with two pits, suggests that the features may have been related to this site.
