Abstract:
An archaeological watching brief was carried out during construction works associated with the Braid Burn Flood Prevention Scheme at Nether Liberton (Work Unit 7A/7B). The programme of work monitored involved the excavation of three trenches for the installation of reinforced concrete floodwalls. Photographs of the road bridge carrying Gilmerton Road across the Braid Burn were also taken and a watching brief was maintained during demolition works. During the course of the watching brief two substantial stone box culverts were identified. These features are likely to relate to the control of water for the mill. The feature in Area 1 is probably a section of buried mill lade taking the water from the Mill back to the Braid Burn. The feature in Area 2 is likely to be a side lade for taking excess water or diverted water back in to the Braid Burn before it reached the Mill. The bridge appeared to be a single phase construction with two vaulted arches on its northern side. Between the buttress walls it was in-filled with compacted clay, sand and gravel to provide a flat surface for the road deck. The splitting of the flow of the Burn by the use of the two vaulted arches allowed one stream to be directed towards the entrance to the Mill Lade and the other to continue as the Braid Burn's main channel.
