Abstract:
Headland Archaeology undertook a photographic survey on two sites, Danestone Policy Wall (Site D1) and Grandholm Canalised Water Course (Site A25), as part of a programme of archaeological non-invasive investigations to facilitate the construction of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and associated schemes. The Historic Building Recording of an additional site, Grandholm Mill Lades (Site A26) was not possible to complete due to health and safety concerns. The photographic survey found Danestone Policy Wall (Site D1), associated with Danestone House (Site L2), to be in good condition and standing to a height of up to 2.4m on its west side and 1m on the east side where the ground level was considerably higher. The wall was up to 0.4m in width and formed of slaister-pointed random field rubble, with a coping course of medium sized stone (c. 0.25m high), many of which are set on their edges. The photographic survey of Grandholm Canalised Watercourse (Site A25) revealed the feature to be a canalised stream with a width of 1.22m and an internal height of 1.26m running from the south-east corner of the grounds of Danestone House (Site L2). It is formed by a granite drystone dyke on the north side which was partially revetted into the ground and a cement bonded granite wall on the south. The walls are 0.3m thick with rough, single width granite coping at the top. Partial collapse of the south wall was present measuring c. 3m in length. It was not possible to determine if a c. 5m gap in the wall was a later addition or part of the original wall.
