St Ninian’s Manse

Quayside Street, off Sandport Place, Leith, Edinburgh

The work which Simpson & Brown undertook at St Ninian’s Manse demonstrates the way in which minimum repairs and alterations can provide a sustainable new use.

St Ninian’s Manse played a vital role in the development pattern and identity of Leith because it stood at the head of the first bridge to North Leith and makes its first religious foundation

It contains masonry from the only pre-reformation building to survive in the area and is an unusual example of a 17th century clergy building associated with an urban church (top photograph shows existing building).
