Standing Building Recording (1 November 2014)

Headland Archaeology was commissioned by 3DReid Architects to undertake a programme of historic building recording at 396-410 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh to inform a planning application (11/02827/FUL) for proposed student housing on the site. The building recording focussed on the upstanding remains of the late 18th or early 19th century Gorgie Mills, originally a grain mill though modified and reused for other functions. Building upon earlier desk-based assessment and trial trenching, a broad chronology has been constructed, showing significant periods of change throughout the 19th and 20th centuries.
