The old gate post with hook
for the farm gate can be seen in this photo.
Local resident, John Stevenson
is standing beside this post. John researches maritime history,
local history and family history. He told me:
"There used to be a similar post on the
opposite side of Rosebank Road but that has now gone.
I remember that the farmer used to have a few
sheep. Occasionally, when the sheep were being taken from the farm,
he would call on the children in the district to help.
He would hang a gate on this post to close off
the road, then open it a little to allow sheep out, we would all have to
make sure that they found their way onto the waiting lorry and did not
escape down Granton Road."
