Archaeology Notes

NS55NW 91 546 592

NS 5461 5924 (centred on) Watching brief between September 2004 and February 2005 of proposed development of industrial unit in which a dye, bleach and print works had once stood, before demolition in 1975. Although demolition had removed most of the structural remains across the site several sections of walls and concrete floor surfaces survived along with materials indicative of later use of the site by the MOD as a storage depot. Geotechnical test pitting revealed structural remains below the present ground surface relating to surface and sub-surface remains of the dye works. These remains consisted of floor deposits, and segments of the culverted Auldhouse burn. The upstanding remains consisted of an embanked railway incline, and a probable junction with sidings. Parts of the site were heavily contaminated and access to these areas was prohibited.
