Abstract:
A level 2 standing building survey and desk-based assessment was undertaken at Wellhill Farm and Hall of Auchencross, near New Cumnock, East Ayrshire as part of the Greenburn Surface Mine Extension. The survey showed that at Welhill Farm and Hall of Auchencross Farm has its origins in the 17th century but nothing structural survives from this period. Both farmhouses and associated byres and cartsheds were laid out in the late 18th or early 19th century and all have been greatly altered to suit the needs of modern farming. The bulk of the buildings comprised steel-framed sheds of no historical importance. Stone fragments and a carved face may be architectural features recovered from the former medieval hall of Auchencross which has been subsumed by modern farm buildings.
