Activities

Watching Brief (11 May 2006 - 9 August 2006)

NT 2674 7654 Due to the proximity of the line of the Leith Citadel Ditch and revetment wall, a watching brief was

undertaken between 11 May-9 August 2006 during groundworks for a residential redevelopment, revealing a stone-built well of unknown date. The well was subsequently protected from any adverse impact from the development by rafting measures. No association with Cromwell's Citadel wall was determined. No other deposits or features of archaeological significance were observed by the watching brief.
