The history:hub is dedicated to the collection and archiving of materials and objects connected with the history of the Granton, Pilton and Muirhouse areas of Edinburgh. The archive is made up of maps, photographs, publications and videos, and more items are added on a regular basis. Informative talks about the history of the area are regularly provided by the hub, and three North Edinburgh Shorewalks have been developed that visit key historic sites in the local area. ‘From The Past to the Future’ is a permanent exhibition at Madelvic House, featuring original photos and artefacts from individuals and collections in North Edinburgh.
A map with walks around Granton and the surrounding area is now available to download.
The walk covers the following trips:
- Cramond to Silverknowes
- Silverknowes to Gasometer
- Scottish Gas HQ to Granton Square and Newhaven
We have collaborated with the University of Edinburgh and now have a virtual heritage walking tour. Check the Curious Edinburgh page
