Watching Brief (12 November 2012 - 13 November 2012)

NT 3315 3633 A watching brief was carried out, 12–13 November 2012, prior to a proposed residential development on land N and E of Station House. The site is immediately N of the former Innerleithen Railway Station, and the 1st Edition OS map of 1856 shows a rail line crossing the site. A linear cut, wall and black deposit of shale and coal recorded during the work probably related to the construction of the railway. It may be concluded that the work undertaken during the development of the railway will have removed any potentially archaeologically significant deposits.
