Historic Walk

Canonmills and Silvermills

Eyre Place

Here, one of two groups of walkers pause in Eyre Place, almost opposite the site where Canonmills House once stood, to hear a little of the history of the area from their guide, Karen MacCormick.

Canonmills House can be seen top-centre in this 1870 map.  Eyre Place is the un-named road in this map, leading to the east from the eastern end of Henderson Row.  (This is a large map.  You may need to scroll to see the whole map.
