The Corner of Drummond Street and Pleasance

Police Box beneath the Flodden Wall

This is one of several former Police Boxes still to be found around the streets of Edinburgh.  It can be found beneath the Flodden Wall on the corner of Drummond Street and Pleasance in Edinburgh's Old Town.

The building in the distance to the right of the Police Box is in Holyrood Road.

Exhibition

Malcolm Irving used this box to publicise his book 'Edinburgh Police Boxes' and his photos of Police Boxes by holding a small exhibition there during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2010..  His exhibition was open from 12 noon to 1pm for about ten days from August 9, 2010.

His exhibition is advertised on the poster on the box, but it was not open when I took the photo at the top of this page.

However, I returned three days later and found the exhibition open.  Malcolm was there.  The door of the Police Box was open, and there were lights around the roof of the box.  I took a few photos then, including this one:
