Fabric Recording (23 October 2008 - 24 October 2008)

NT 2543 7358 A programme of works was carried out in October 2008 to record a series of features identified during landscaping. The features consisted of a concrete plinth of possible WW2 date, a sandstone and lime mortar wall and possible medieval midden deposits.

The concrete plinth was octagonal in shape and had three metal pegs inserted into its upper surface. The location of the wall matched the position of the W wall of a probable tenement block shown on the 1st Edition OS map of 1852, suggesting that it probably related to this building. A direct relationship between the wall and the possible medieval midden deposits suggested that the midden material post-dated the demolition of the tenement, and probably represented material introduced in the 20th century during an earlier phase of landscaping.
