Arches

This view looks to the east along Manderston Street, close to the foot of Leith Walk.

The arches on the right supported the Caledonian Railway line as it passed high over Leith Walk (out of picture on the right). 

The line to the left went around Leith Links and looped back to South Leith Goods Station.  To the right, it went through Bonnington to Newhaven Goods Station.

The arches are now used by a variety of businesses, mostly motor trades.
