Abstract:
Keppie Planning Ltd, on behalf of their client, Craighead Properties Ltd, commissioned SUAT Ltd to undertake an archaeological evaluation on the site of a proposed mixed use development at Craighead, Blantyre, South Lanarkshire. The site covered an area of 19.6 hectares, mainly arable, but also includes the site formerly occupied by the mansion of Craighead House and its associated outbuildings, designed landscape and walled garden. The house and most of the outbuildings were demolished in 2001 or 2002 but the walled garden was still upstanding at the time of the evaluation. SUAT completed a desk-based assessment, and a walkover took place 26th March 2008. A total 91 trenches were excavated. Trenches within the arable fields found 19th-20th century pottery scattered in the topsoil and field drains cut into the natural boulder clay. Two walls found in the south field were considered to be boundary walls. Nothing of archaeological significance was found in the arable fields. Trenches around the site of Craighead House and the walled garden revealed walls, floors, drains and other services relating to Craighead House. No archaeological features or other dating evidence earlier than 18th-19th centuries was found in this area. A survey of the walled garden was carried out as it appeared to contain elements of the 18th century predecessor of Craighead House within the elements of its E wall.
