Archaeology Notes

NX96NE 61 9822 6818

NX 983 680. Exploratory excavations near the edge of the merse have revealed an area which was either the off-loading area for the 18th century jetty or the site of a brickworks known to be functioning in the 1750's. This excavation throws considerable doubt on the authenticity of the site of Latimer's Grave marked on OS 6" map (see NX96NE 4).

J Williams 1965.

A unroofed structure annotated 'Old Brick Kiln' is depicted on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Kirkcudbrightshire 1854, sheet xxxiv), but it was not on shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10560 map (1971).
