Archaeology Notes

NT26NW 63.01 21256 69468

Low stable court to the SE (of Hailes House), with new roof-tiles and windows.

J Gifford, C McWilliam and D Walker 1984.

The stable block was converted to residential use (as Woodlands) about 1946 having been used since the early 1930's only as a builders' yard during the construction of the adajcent housing development. The walls incorporate re-used dressed blocks, some of which bear masons' marks.

Digging to the N of the house has revealed flagstones and an underlying layer of mortar (around NT 21257 69495), a layer of rubble (between NT 21269 69488 and 21270 69481) and a cobbled surface (around NT 21250 69495); these features range between about 0.3 and 0.6m below the present ground surface.

Parchmarks of indeterminate form have also been noted in the lawn centred at NT 21255 69480.

Information from: Mr R S Scott (Woodlands, 2 Hailes Avenue, Edinburgh EH13 0NA), 3 January 1997.
