Abstract:
A programme of archaeological evaluation and survey works was undertaken in respect of the proposed residential development at Nether Mill, Kilbirnie, North Ayrshire (NGR 3189 5377). The archaeological works was carried out over a two day period from the 22nd to 23rd of May 2007. The evaluation opened nine trenches covering the available open ground to the east of the mill complex and over the site of a long cist exposed in 1798. A representative sample, as agreed with the West of Scotland Archaeology Service, of all of the uncovered features with archaeological potential was investigated. The trenches exhibited a common stratigraphic sequence with topsoil up to 450mm in depth overlying variable subsoil. Occasional rubble field drains indicating an attempt at improvement were apparent throughout the eastern fields and an area of broad rig was recorded in the southern field. The elements of the Mill Complex were recorded; a denuded late 18th century mill with adjoined cottage survives with fragments of an internal geared 19th century wheel extant. The lade, mill pond and races are still identifiable but no longer hold water. No mill machinery, other than the fragmentary wheel, remains on-site and the structure stands no more than one storey high. The mill is a minor structure and in a poor condition; it should be considered to be of local importance.
