Scope and Content Quayside Mills, Church Street, Leith, Edinburgh (Edinburgh City council area) This was a complcated group of buildings, designed originally to use grain imported through the port of Leith, in which it had its own quay. The oldest part was the former manse of Leith, to which at least four additions were made at various periods. This view shows the mills from the east. The lead-covered steeple of the former manse is just to the left of the chimney, with a steam-engine house in front of it, which served the mill block to the left. The stone block with the arched doorway is early. This complex was gradually whittled away over the thirty years or so following 1966, leving the stone-built sections, including wat was left of the former manse. These relics were refurbished in the late 1990s to designs by Simpson and Brown, architects. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
