Abstract:
Alder Archaeology Ltd was commissioned by Tulloch NET and PKHT to carry out an archaeological walkover survey and basic desk-based assessment of the Perth's historic lade to give an overview of its cultural heritage. The city lade runs for some 4.5 miles from a weir known as Low's Work on the River Almond by Huntingtower, through Tulloch estate and onwards to Perth city centre where it exits into the River Tay by the Old Tay Bridge. The entire non-culverted length of the lade was surveyed over four days between the 10th and 24th of May 2011. The recent winter flooding had caused damage to the weir at the intake on the River Almond and this meant that upper portions of the lade were dry during the survey. As well as recording the general conditions and alterations to the mills along the lade, the survey identified several new features including earthworks near Ruthvenfield and various clay pits of unknown date below Perth crematorium.
