Activities

Geophysical Survey (6 May 2013)

NT 2771 7082 A ground resistance geophysical survey consisting of two partial 20 x 20m grids was carried out at Inch House on 6 May 2013, at the request of the Greater Liberton Heritage Project, which was interested in trying to locate a well and any earlier buildings near to the existing house. The area surveyed was on the E side of the house and had a maximum extent of 32 x 18m, though with several gaps due to buildings and hard surfaces.

The only clear high resistance features found were associated with modern disturbance. Elsewhere there was little variation in ground resistance, with the possible exception of one area that showed more variation. Unfortunately, the survey was so constrained by buildings and hard surfaces in this area that it is not possible to draw any conclusions on what might be causing the variations.
