Archaeology Notes

NO12SW 139 118 238.

Piling work for a new office extension for the Hydro-Board revealed a stone lined well under the car park, noted during a watching brief. The well lay 5m S of the area investigated in 1984 (see NO12SW 138) and was probably of 18-19th century date.

Demolition of a boundary wall for the above developement revealed a re-used decorated lintel. This stone may have come from Lord John Murray's house which stood adjacent to the site.

D Bowler and D Hall 1985.
