Archaeological Survey Report on the Wee Birks Field

A walk-over archaeological survey was conducted in March 2017 by Claire Thomas. Three sites were identified: a stone wall; a stone and earth bank; foundations of a small building. This last site is almost certainly the foundations for a ‘Pump Room shed’ in use in the mid 19th century. The stone wall along with the stone and earth bank may originally have formed a loaning, for leading animals to pasture, probably older than the Pump Room.
