Doors Open Day: Couperfield House

The Edinburgh Doors Open Day is organised by The Cockburn Association (Edinburgh’s Civic Trust), in partnership with Edinburgh World Heritage.

This is one of the gateposts that used to say, left and right, “Couper Street School”.

This is the house: it used to be the janitor’s house for Couper Street School, which no longer exists. The bell is from the school days.

Doors Open Day: St Ninian’s Manse

I took a photo of this building in July (Quayside Street Clocktower), but it wasn’t until Doors Open Day that I found it is St Ninian’s Manse, Quayside Mills, Leith.
