Shrubhill Tram Depot

Shrubhill started off as stables for the horse trams and became the hub of Edinburgh's previous tram network. This was the site of the entrance, and a range of close-packed buildings stretched to Dryden Street over 300 yards away. There has been little to see from Leith Walk for some years, but there will be nothing at all to see when the site is finally redeveloped as is happening here on 8 March 2015. Leith Walk station was immediately to the left, after the Granton Harbour branch tunnels briefly under the Walk. This was once the site of Edinburgh's out of town gallows!
