Statement of Interest

The very steep pitch of the roof indicates at least an early 18th century origin, if not earlier. The roof was almost certainly thatched in its original state. The building is first clearly indicated on Knox's map of 1812, and labelled as Liberton Park on the Ordnance Survey map of 1853.
