Colinton Local History Society

Our next meeting is our Christmas event, including mince pies and wine, at 8pm on Monday, 7th December, in Dreghorn Loan Hall. Since we will not have access to the hall until slightly later than usual, please make sure not to arrive before 7.45 at the very earliest.

This map shows the location of Colinton Parish on the south-west edge of Edinburgh. The parish includes a wide variety of housing, agricultural, military, commercial and formerly industrial areas as well as taking in a stretch of the Union Canal and some of the Pentland Hills.

Bridge Road, Colinton, about a hundred years ago. The traffic problems were slightly different then.
