Statement of Interest

Built over lower-level route from Tower Bridge to provide convenient access to and from Pittencrieff House, then privately owned. Both the house and its grounds were bought by Andrew Carnegie in 1902. The grounds were opened as a public park the following year and are included in the 'Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes' (see above). See separate list descriptions for park buildings, including Pittencrieff House.
