Thank you to Patrick Hutton for sending me two recent photographs of
Bonnington Toll. The view above looks down Bonnington Road towards
"I have a strong suspicion that the
big red sandstone bridge abutment at Bonnington Toll is about to
be swept away.
There have been signs advising
roadworks beginning 22 Jan 2008, and I think the 'retail park'
(Comet, etc, all now closed) there is shortly to become Westpoint
This bridge abutment was part of the
old Caledonian freight line to Leith, via Victoria Park, Leith
Walk and Seafield. Photos of the bridge (bowstring girder)
