Desk Based Assessment (1 July 2008 - 4 July 2008)

An archaeological baseline study for a scoping exercise was conducted as part of a planning application for a proposed developement of the area. Prior to 1850 the site comprised part of the Stobcross estate and was primarily farmland. With the building of St Vincent Crescent, by the Glasgow architect Alexander Kirkland, just to the north of the site the area was developed for a boating lake and formal gardens. By the 1930's the artificial lake had been filled in and the site utilised for tennis courts, bowling greens and light industrial units. An geotechnical survey conducted in during 2006 indicated that made ground deposits, up to 3m in depth, existed across the proposed developement area.
