Archaeology Notes

NH54NE 23 574 457

NH 44/54 OS 574457 No. 47 Balintore Farm.

At low tide traces can be seen of a grassy track in the saltings running NE and then turning north to the edge of the burn at a point where small boats could hace reached at high tide. This track was later cut off by a sea wall constructed probably at the time the burn was embanked in 1780. the track would have been replaced by another to reach a newly dug canal at NH 574 455 which was also cut off, this time by the railway in the early eighteen-sixties.

Coghill et al 1989.

The form of the canalised banks is relatively clear. However vegetative cover is extensive and overgrown. The associated sea wall was not visited as was the landing place.
