littered steps

A brothel near the foot of Broughton Street occupies the basement flats of two stairs: only one entrance is in use. This is the unused stair to the unused door.

It’s that blocked drain in Dock Place again. But it looks prettier drowned in brightly-coloured leaves.

Sunday 14th December. Clean-up. Balerno. 10am – 12.30pm. Meet at Currie Rugby Club car park in Balerno. Take the 1st left after Balerno High School off Bridge road onto Bavelaw Road. Take the next left off Bavelaw Road. As before, we provide all the equipment just wear sensible warm outdoor clothes that you don’t mind getting mucky, walking boots / wellies and bring waterproofs just in case.

A puddle on Tower Street

I saw Fishers and their hopeful street planter reflected in a puddle on Tower Street: and behind it all the guddle of the street being dug up. For some reason.
