Comely Bank

Dean Bridge

Water of Leith

Most of the housing in this area had not been build when the 1844 map  was published.  Upper-left is Comely Bank, with its 3-storey tenement buildings.

These are built close to the roads, with no gardens at the front, but they have 'greens' (large square areas, originally used for hanging out clothes to dry) hidden in the centre of each building.

The valley of the Water of Leith can be seen, running along the bottom of this area, passing under Telford's Dean Bridge, then turning towards the north past St Bernard's Well.
