The plan of this area more or less as built appears on Wood's 1820 map of Edinburgh. The Merchant Company had adopted William Burn's plan for the Grindlay family's Orchardfield estate in 1820. Spittal Street provides an important piece of townscape, articulating the approach to Thomas Hamilton's King's Bridge. No 23 is listed for group value.
