Abstract:
ARCHAS Cultural Heritage Ltd were commissioned by BabyHydro to undertake an archaeological watching brief during all ground breaking works associated with the installation of a domestic hydro scheme with ancillary generator housing and underground pipework at the Old Mill house in Milton Brae near Dumbarton. When complete the scheme will produce around 3.6kW of renewable energy per year, enough for all the property's energy needs. The watching brief followed the placement of a planning condition upon the proposed development by West Dunbartonshire Council as advised by the West of Scotland Archaeology Service. The project involved the excavation of a narrow pipe trench with a final depth of 2.5m. This trench revealed the route of the pipeline to cut across an area of high bedrock and deep made ground. Two walls were revealed during the excavation, although safety concerns made accurate recording of these features problematic. It is thought the walls relate to earlier mill structures on the site, almost certainly post-medieval in date. No artefacts were recovered which are thought to pre-date the 18th century. With the excavations completed under direct archaeological supervision, ARCHAS Cultural Heritage recommend the archaeological condition be discharged.
