Abstract:
Jacobs UK carried out a desk based assessment and walk over survey as a means of identifying known and potential archaeological features that may be affected by the proposed housing development at Braidbar Quarry, Giffnock. The desk-based assessment covered the Braidbar site (16 acres), and approximately 1 km beyond the site boundary. A total of 3 archaeological sites were identified within the site boundary, these comprised of in-filled and landscaped quarries which extend in to the proposed development area. Giffnock was well known for its quarries and it is recorded that sandstone was first quarried in this area in 1835. In its heyday the area was dominated with quarries including Braidbar, New Braidbar, Williamwood, Giffnock and New Giffnock. The quarries produced two types of stone, 'liver rock' and 'Moor rock'.
