Heritage and Archaeological Research Practice Limited (HARP) were commissioned by Forth Property Management to carry out a programme of archaeological works at the location of a proposed extension to the rear of 2 Old Mill Lane, Edinburgh in order to fulfill an archaeological condition as part of planning consent. The works consisted of an archaeological watching brief to monitor ground breaking associated with the development. The development area is located in the garden to the rear of 2 Old Mill Lane in the Cameron Toll/Liberton area of Edinburgh. The site consisted of mainly concrete paving, a low garden wall and a small washhouse that was demolished prior to the construction of the extension. No archaeologically significant remains were uncovered during excavations at 2 Old Mill Lane. Deposits that were revealed consisted of garden soil and modern building remains. The only feature revealed were parts of the foundations of the modern washhouse that had been previously demolished.

Heritage and Archaeological Research Practice Limited (HARP) were commissioned by Engineshed LLP to carry out a programme of archaeological works at the location of a proposed redevelopment at 22A Milton Street, Edinburgh in order to fulfill an archaeological condition as part of planning consent. The proposed development consists of a part demolition and change in use of the existing structures to two new, four bed dwellings. The development works will consist of part demolition of the existing structures and ground breaking for foundations and drainage prior to the construction of the new buildings. The archaeological works consisted of a Desk-Based Assessment (DBA), Historic Building Recording (HBR) and an archaeological watching brief to monitor ground breaking associated with the development. Results of the DBA, HBR and watching brief show that the warehouse complex at 22A Milton Street originates from the late 19th Century, and was part of the original Milton House Works. Since its original construction there were several alterations to the original structure, including a likely demolition and rebuilding of the western building. Following redevelopment works at 22A Milton Street, all of the original eastern building, and the additional steel roof beams remain standing and have been incorporated into the redevelopment. The rebuilt western building has been demolished and will be replaced by a new building. Other than the original foundations for the western building, and a possible tank stand associated with the original foundations, no other archaeological remains were revealed.

Heritage and Archaeological Research Practice Limited (HARP) were commissioned by Guild Homes, to carry out a programme of archaeological works at the location of a proposed development in the land south of Gardyne Street, Friockheim in order to fulfil an archaeological condition as part of planning consent (Planning Reference 11/00002/PPPM). The first phase of the works consisted of an archaeological evaluation of the proposed development site, other than the South East portion, which was under crop at the time.The findings from the initial phase of evaluation led to the requirement to extend an area around archaeological features found in Trench 16. In the second phase of evaluation trenches in the South East corner no further remains were revealed other than a series of field drains of both rubble and clay pipe varieties. Other than plough furrows evaluation of the south eastern portion of the development area revealed no features. A total of 39 evaluation trenches were excavated. A total of 33 negative features were revealed in the excavated area around Trench 16. Of these, four are likely natural deposits; one is modern; one is a large ring ditch with three internal features; one is a truncated ring gully with six associated pits or postholes; and seventeen are isolated pits.
