Archaeology Notes

NY19NW 82 1091 9711

NY 1091 9711 Strengthening works to the railway viaduct over the River Annan S of Cogrie Farm in early 1996 caused a change in river currents. Approximately 8m downstream from the viaduct a 3m wide causeway was exposed in the river bed. The water level at the time was relatively low and the river confined to its main channel, rather than its wider course. The causeway is built of dressed sandstone blocks, mainly red, and appears to have ?grooves? or ?drains? at each side. It was visible for a length of some 4m projecting from the northern bank. This may be a feature connected with the building of the viaduct. The Roman road through Annandale is also recorded in the locality.
