Chapel Lane

According to Robertson’s ” Antiquities,” the
earliest of these episcopal chapels was situated in
Chapel Lane (at the foot of Quality Street), and
was demolished several years ago, and an ancient
tablet which stood above the door-lintel was built
into a house near the spot where the chapel stood.
It bears the following inscription :—
T. F. THAY. AR. VVELCOM. HEIR. THAT.
A. M. GOD. DOIS, LOYE. AND. FEIR. 1590.
In 1788 this building was converted into a
dancing-school, said to be the first that was opened
in Leith
