Demolition of the Bus Depot

The former Eastern Scottish bus depot in New Street, built in the 1930s,  has recently been demolished to make way for Mountgrange's proposed Caltongate development in the Waverley Valley (still subject to detailed planning permission) at May 2007.

During the demolition, remains of buildings from Edinburgh's first gas works were discovered.  This gas works began production in 1817 and at one time employed around 200 people.

The New Street site stopped production of gas in the early-1900swhen a new gas works was opened beside the Firth of Forth at Granton.
