London Road Gardens
Beautifully landscaped gardens by William Playfair who designed the Calton extension to the New Town. Once the private preserve of the residents of Royal Terrace, they appear to have been opened to the general public when the surrounding iron railings were removed by the city authorities during the Second World War. Curiously, this policy was not followed in the case of the private gardens in the Georgian New Town. In contrast, 'the Lundies' provided post-war children growing up in the Calton Ward with a mini-paradise play area.
