Statement of Interest

Built for Wardie & Co as the Leith Stables, with a ramp to the side. Several of the windows have been extended down, and all the glazing is later. The drawings do not show a gablehead window. The en suite decorative brick wall to the street is a very recent addition, being part of the Leith improvement schemes.
