St Ninianís Manse and sugar bond
3-9 Quayside Street, Quayside Mills incorporating a former Manse, remains of St Ninian's Church, tenement, granary and mill - a Grade-A listed 4/5-storey complex of buildings on Quayside Street, Leith, with elegant clock and bell tower dating from 1675, which is the only surviving 17thC steeple in Edinburgh. On the site of an earlier chapel, the manse dates from about 1585. After the building of a new church for North Leith the manse and church were sold in 1816 and in 1825 converted to a granary, and then rebuilt as a mill. By 1968 the building was semi-derelict. In 1997 it was bought by the Cockburn Association and restored for use as offices. The adjacent sugar bond has been converted into flats.
