Activities

Watching Brief (9 March 2011 - 7 September 2011)

NS 2994 7553 A watching brief was undertaken on 9 March 2011 during ground-breaking works at James Watt Dock. The site had been identified as being archaeologically sensitive and potentially contained earlier dock features/surfaces and pre-industrial archaeological remains. The small area of ground-breaking works that was monitored revealed a brick constructed culvert that contained a number of cast-iron pipes and modern cables. This culvert was considered to be part of the 1870's dock construction. No other significant archaeological finds or features were recorded.
