June 25th Meeting – Calling all Dreamers!

Midsummer has brought renewed energy and hope for local people determined to save Granton Castle’s ‘forgotten’ Walled Garden from a luxury townhouse development.

Latest news from the city council’s planning committee looks really positive, with new rules to stop lengthy delays in ‘legacy’ applications. The B-listed garden’s future is finally to be decided on the 29th July!

Next Friends Group meeting

Thursday 25th June, 6-7.30 pm

Royston Wardieburn Community Centre

11 Pilton Drive North


Now going strong for almost a year! The Friends Group ideas and aspirations are growing with support and encouragement from outside organisations like the RCAHMS.

Many local people have now heard the story of Granton Castle’s & its ‘secret’ garden but can’t visit, so one of our first steps would be to make the garden accessible and safe to enter. It is currently locked to visitors and a bit overgrown.

The Victorian greenhouse, still salvageable?

The 1930’s glasshouse, still salvageable?
