Name and dates

Chancelot Mill [1st] (1894-1970)

Served by the Easter Road Deviation (North British Railway).

Description

This large flour mill was located north of the Bonnington North Junction to Bonnington East Junction. When built, the area was largely undeveloped (see NLS link).

Sidings originally ran west from Bonnington North Junction to serve the mill.

After closure of the box at Bonnington North Junction, and the removal of the connection to the west-east curve, the line from Bonnington West junction became a reversing spur for the mill.

The mill was relocated to Chancelot Mill [2nd] in Leith in 1970.

The mills, which were architecturally notable (see Canmore link), were demolished and the site is now housing.
