Activities

Standing Building Recording (1 August 2011 - 30 September 2011)

AOC Archaeology Group were commissioned by George Sharkey and Sons Ltd to undertake a Level 2/3 survey on buildings affected by a large-scale development at 18 - 21 Market Street and 6 Cockburn Street in Edinburgh. These works were undertaken as one of the conditions of planning consent on the development as determined by the City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service, who advise the City of Edinburgh Council on archaeological matters. The work was undertaken after a period of abandonment for the buildings, which were previously used for offices for the Edinburgh City Council and were empty at the time of survey. The present buildings consist of two main elements. To the centre of the plot at Market Street is a multi-storey seven floor block with another later 1920s addition to the west side. At No 6 Cockburn Street to the south-east of this is another multi-storey late 19th century five-storey block.
