Colinton Local History Society

Our next meeting is on Monday, 15th February, at 8pm in Dreghorn Loan Hall. Due to unforeseen circumstances, there is a change to our programme on that night. We are very grateful to James Waugh for agreeing at short notice to come and speak to us on what promises to be a fascinating topic: The Innocent Railway 1831 - 43.

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.
