Gas Holders

Edinburgh Waterfront was until recently an area dominated by Granton Gas Works,  small industries, wasteland.

Three large gas holders that dominated the site.  The first of the three was demolished in February 2003, the month before the pictures on this page were taken.

Remains of the Wall

When I first came across the remains of this wall in the undergrowth, I thought it must have once been part of Granton Castle.

However, I can now thank S Frame for writing:

"You have a couple of photos entitled 'Granton Castle Wall' which include a very nice wee turret thing  - not to do with Granton Castle, tho', except for the Victorian aesthetic when the Gasworks were being built.

Granton Castle and its walls were, and what remains are, a few feet to the East and North.

It was those funny turrets and the doocot that first got me looking into Granton Castle, so it must be an easy mistake to make."
