A trial trenching evaluation was carried out by AOC Archaeology Group in 2021 in Conon Bridge in advance of the demolition of the former public house The Drouthy Duck for housing development plots and associated infrastructure. The requirement arose due to the historic nature of the Drouthy Duck building and the potential for the survival of archaeological remains in the surrounding area. Ahead of the proposed development, eleven trenches were excavated in the surrounding open ground. There were no archaeologically significant results other than the identification of a former sandstone field boundary crossing through three trenches. The boundary is depicted on Ordnance Survey 1st edition maps of 1873. No further archaeological work was recommended. <1>
The map is limited to 3000 records per layer so not all records are being displayed for this area. Zoom in to see more.
