Archaeology Notes

NT26NW 461 20912 65088 and 20943 65055

Two disused quarries (CDTA05 208, 209) are situated at the top of the steep SE flank of Harbour Hill. The larger measures up to 30m across by 1.8m in depth and its S end is crossed by a post-and-wire fence. The quarries are not depicted on either the 1st or 2nd edition of the OS 6-inch map (Edinburghshire 1854, sheet 12; Edinburghshire [new series] 1905, sheet VII.SW).
