Andrew Durward is also listed on the Ford UF Church memorial which is now in Cranstoun Church, Midlothian.

What a great memorial. Never ceases to amaze the different types out there.

When the doors are closed there is some great engraving on the outside of the cabinet but for some reason I did not photograph it.

This type of cabinet resembles the street shrines popular in northern towns in England. I recently posted a similar but more modest one in Largs.

The North Canongate School is no longer used as a school and is called Canongate Venture. It overlooks the new City Council Head Offices.

This is not my image, I took it from here



I will try and get one myself.

Good to see the memorial was rescued when the school closed.
