Summary Record

Grove Street was first conceived in the 1820s as being formed in three parts, with North and South Grove Streets leading to a central Grove Square. It was to be built on the Grove property of John Bonar Esq. It was never built in this form.

By 1849 the lowest number buildings on Grove Street, had been built, running south from Morrison Street. Across the railway bridge, the road was known as Grove Lane, and was little built up. It lead to Fountainbridge.

Over the next few years the street, and the adjoining streets of Upper Grove Place and Brandfield Street, were completed. They are shown as fully formed on the OS 1st Edition map, published in 1856.
