Description

As part of ongoing works at the Maldie Burn hydro-electric scheme, measured and photographic surveys of the former park dyke and sheep pens were carried out by C Dagg in 2011. This was in fulfilment of the planning condition that covered all the features that were to be impacted by the construction of the power house, tailrace and works compound. It was felt that the standing features, namely the drystone dyke of the park enclosure were deemed to be adequately recorded by the Halcrow Group. A sheep fank, reduced to low and overgrown footings, was only partially recorded so this was further measured by means of a plane table survey. <1>
