Here are snippets of the work done by the Seton Archaeological Society 'SAS'.

Beginning in 2017, with permission from the Leech's, this small team begun the arduent task of uncovering the remains of the Palace of Seton that was buried in the MacKenzie-Adam work of 1789.

What can been seen below, are photo's provided from their work, and many more examples can be viewed on their Facebook page, referenced above.

After uncovering the foundation-remains of the front turrets of the Palace, and the walling connecting them and which formed the lower portion of the vaults under the Great Hall, they also uncovered the walling-foundations of the stables and Guard Tower, revealing the dimensions and shapes.

Highlights include Mason's marks on the circular turret walls, drainage-sewage foundations, flagstone-flooring, corbelling and gun-loop fragments.

With this work documented, they turned their attention to the old Seton Jail.

We are encouraging ALL Seton family members to join in and celebrate what is the most significant work at Seton, since the demolition of the Palace. Links have been provided above and below for the Seton Archaeological Society 'SAS' Facebook page for Seton family members to join and support, along with various other references.
