Standing Building Recording (2013)

NT 26016 77051: At the behest of the City of Edinburgh Council Archaeology Service (CECAS), a curving revetting wall for Lyndsay Road to the south of Chancelot/ ADM Mill was recorded by digital photography

and written description. The wall was 13.1 m long 2.45 m high and comprised nine courses of irregular stones capped by concrete that supported iron railings. Additional supports for the railings have been attached to the face of the wall. A drain pipe also protrudes from the upper

section of the wall and may be an overflow drain from the road surface above. The building stone was a mixture of shaped rectangular blocks and natural rounded boulders, some of which had been split and roughly shaped. The wall appears to have collapsed in places as there are

two areas that have been repaired. The repaired sections consist of smaller stones laid in regular courses but still included natural rounded boulders.
