An archaeological investigation prior to the rear extension of an 20th century semidetached property to the north of Preston Tower in Prestonpans. Excavation to a depth of 740mm exposed the construction debris of a late 20th century building and two features of possible late 19th century date relating to the orchard phase. No significant archaeology was uncovered, with most of the area being heavily altered in the 1960s. Planning was granted and the report and word was completed within 1 week. One interesting find was a clay pipe with a definitely Irish flavour.
