Scope and Content Bonnington Mills Granary, Newhaven Road, Edinburgh This shows the granary on the right, with the mill beyond. The two buildings are linked by gangways at two levels. The end of the miller's house is on the left. The road was the original Newhaven Road, before a new Bonnington Bridge was built in about 1900. The mill had three pairs of stones, supported on cast iron framing, and driven by a low-breast paddle wheel 1.8m wide by 3.35m in diameter. The machinery was made by Alex Mather, Fountainbridge. The mill and granary were demolished in the late 1970s and replaced by housing. These mills were probably on a very early site, but the buildings latterly surviving were probably built in the 18th and 19th centuries. The mill building was four storeys high, with a curved iron roof, and had probably been rebuilt after a fire. There was a parallel, detached, granary block to the south.
