Archaeology Notes

NT58NE 182 55205 85192

(NT 5526 8523) A building recording survey and evaluation were undertaken in June 2003. A two-storey derelict shop with a rectangular garden to the rear stands on the development site and is scheduled for demolition. It is shown on the 1907 OS map but is not on the 1st edition.

The building appears to be of a single-phase construction with only minor alterations on the ground floor of the N elevation. There is also residual evidence on the western part of the N elevation for the demolition, sometime during the later 20th century, of an ancillary building.

Four trenches, amounting to 5% of the site area (44m²), were excavated within the garden. A buried soil revealed in one trench is interpreted as being medieval on the basis of the pottery. This deposit was not discovered in any of the other trenches.

Report lodged with East Lothian SMR and the NMRS.
