Watching Brief (July 2005 - September 2005)

An historic buildings survey and archaeological watching brief was required as a condition of planning consent during the renovations of Dalry House, Orwell Place, Edinburgh. These works were undertaken by A0C Archaeology Group.

The watching brief included investigations into selected areas of the house that were subject to soft stripping and renovation. They exposed some early 17th century features and the floor and roof beams dating to the 19th century.

The archaeological watching brief was undertaken on two areas of the grounds that were subject to limited service trenching as part of the development. No archaeological remains were uncovered.
