The tall rubble wall in the garden to the N is the remains of a former building, which is depicted on the 1860 OS Map. The road which runs behind the Town-House and in front of Mint Lea is probably the route of one of the original roads of medieval Culross as the Firth of Forth came up to the Sandhaven area prior to reclamation in the late 19th century.
