Walk around Leith with me, and take photos of some of the places that inspired a modern classic - Leith Dockers Club, the Banana flats, the site of the Leith Central Train Station. Photo-walk starts at the Port of Leith Pub, Constitution Street. The walk ends at the Central Bar at the bottom of Leith Walk, appox time 1 hr 30 mins.

    Indeed, thanks to Audrey and Andy for organising. Like Diane said, I work in Leith but really interesting to see an area through new pair of eyes. Sorry for wandering off to take shots of the blue and yellow tower blocks ..... they have always fascinated me!

    Well organised with plenty of photo opportunities. Some interesting facts about an area with load of history and character made for a good day out.

    Probably the Foot o the walk Jane, althought the Central Bar is very 'colourful', it may be better and cheaper to retire to a Wetherspoons :)

    Can't make the event, but can possibly make a drink afterwards... will that be in the Central Bar? (just wondering...)

    Hi Ivan, the Port of Leith is the name of a pub on Constitution Street. Keep an eye out for other camera people either inside or outside the pub! See you there :-D
