Open Day at Portobello, Edinburgh

An open day at excavations in Portobello will provide an opportunity for people to catch a glimpse of Portobello’s industrial past. Evidence relating to the 19th and 20th century production of bottles and bricks has been revealed during excavations by AOC Archaeology Group. This work is being undertaken in advance of development by Barratt Homes at their site at Baileyfield Crescent, Edinburgh. As well as structural remains such as brick and bottle kilns, many artefacts have been recovered including complete examples of just some of the products made in Portobello during its industrial heyday.

Access to the site is via Baileyfield Crescent. Visitors are most welcome on Saturday 24th February, 10am-3pm.
