Boatbuilding Yard [NAT]

OS (GIS) ep. 4.

Engineering Works [NAT]

OS 1:1250 map, 1970.

This yard formerly fronted onto the Water of Leith. The current edition of the OS (GIS) AIB depicts the area as having been redeveloped. The dry dock had evidently been infilled by 1970, when the OS 1:1250 map depicts its area as open ground.
