Cramond shoreline

There is so much to discover along the Edinburgh coast;
from the rich bird life to amazing rock pools, sea grass beds,
remnant coastal plants hanging on to sea defences and pink grasshoppers

Community groups

Six diverse community groups from along our shoreline, exploring issues such as:

  • pollution
  • use of derelict land
  • changing habitats and heritage

have helped us to produce the Edinburgh Shoreline exhibition. The community group displays will open on 28 July 2018.

EXHIBITION DETAILS
Green Ferry Trust

The Green Ferry Trust have worked with the Edinburgh Shoreline project to tell the story of a community garden at the historic Vennel area of South Queensferry.

Knit the Shoreline

Artist Madeleine Shepherd is working with knitters, felters and crocheters from groups along the length of the Edinburgh shoreline to create a large, woolly diorama of the Edinburgh coast.

Granton Castle Walled Garden

Granton Castle is long gone, but did you know that its beautiful walled garden still remains? The site was earmarked for demolition and development, but a group of committed locals saved the space and it is now used as a beautiful community garden served by an army of volunteers.

Wardie Bay Beachwatch

 Residents of Wardie Bay were a bit fed up with the state of the local beach, particularly the amount of plastic that was always found washed up. They decided to take action!

Newhaven Community Choir

Have you heard the ballads of the Newhaven Fishwife Choir? In the 19thand early 20thcenturies, local ‘fishwives’ went door to door in Edinburgh neighbourhoods selling the days’ catch, which they had earlier cleaned and prepared.

Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home and residents of Portobello

It’s hard to deny that some parts of the Edinburgh shoreline are not quite looking their best... We’ve been working with local residents to complete some habitat restoration planting in areas of Seafield, focusing on plants that will both be good for pollinators and improve the general appearance of the area.
