Canonmills Loch

Canonmills Loch no longer exists.  Now, the Water of Leith flows under a new bridge beside the new 1990s Tanfield offices of The Standard Life Assurance Company with their rooftop gardens.

In the late 19th century, there were gas works and other industries in this area.  

In 1843, the Ministers walked in procession to Tanfield Hall, Canonmills
