Statement of Interest

Some gardens of Boclair Road follow the line of the Antonine Wall (AD 142), the kitchen is sited along its course and this is thought to be the cause of early subsidence within the building. Some pieces of dressed stone have been found in the garden. A storeroom with reinforced door marked 'SA Consulate' dates from the tenancy of a South African diplomat.
