Abstract:
In 2006, after a number of years of monitoring, it became increasingly apparent that the whalebone arch on top of North Berwick Law was becoming a potential danger to the public. A decision was made by East Lothian Council Property Services to remove the arch. The arch was dismantled and after receiving Scheduled Monument Consent from Historic Scotland, the stumps of the arch were dug out by hand (2006). An assessment of the holes following the removal of the stumps identified no archaeological remains. The whalebone arch and stumps are now being stored at St Joseph's School (the ELC Store), Meadowmill.
