There was a rough pathway in the vicinity of modern day Leith Walk in the time of James II in the mid 15th century.[1] However, Leith Walk, as we know it, owes its existence to a defensive rampart which was constructed between the Calton Hill and Leith in the middle of the 17th century. The northern march of Cromwell's army, in 1650, was halted at this line by the Scots under David Leslie (whose army was subsequently defeated at the Battle of Dunbar). The rampart developed later into a footpath described by Daniel Defoe in 1725 as 'a very handsome Gravel-walk, 20 Feet broad, continued to the Town of Leith, which is kept in good repair at the public Charge, and no Horse suffered to come upon it.'[2] The fact that it was forbidden to wheeled traffic explains why the street became known as 't...There was a rough pathway in the vicinity of modern day Leith Walk in the time of James II in the mid 15th century.[1] However, Leith Walk, as we know it, owes its existence to a defensive rampart which was constructed between the Calton Hill and Leith in the middle of the 17th century. The northern march of Cromwell's army, in 1650, was halted at this line by the Scots under David Leslie (whose army was subsequently defeated at the Battle of Dunbar). The rampart developed later into a footpath described by Daniel Defoe in 1725 as 'a very handsome Gravel-walk, 20 Feet broad, continued to the Town of Leith, which is kept in good repair at the public Charge, and no Horse suffered to come upon it.'[2] The fact that it was forbidden to wheeled traffic explains why the street became known as 'the Walk', the name by which it is still known locally. At the time of its creation it provided an alternative (and shorter) route to Edinburgh compared with the older Easter Road and its counterpart Wester Road (present-day Bonnington Road and Broughton Road) although it did not supersede these routes as the main road to Leith until after the building of the North Bridge, completed in 1772. It is notable that the foundation stone of the bridge, laid by Lord Provost Drummond, bore the inscription that it was part of 'a new road to Leith'. It is clear, however, that as early as 1763 (when work began on building the North Bridge) the Walk had become a coach route with a regular service running from Leith to Edinburgh, departing on the hour, from 8am to 8pm. The journey took an hour each way, with a rest at the Halfway House at Shrubhill (which existed as a pub until it closed in 1981). At this time it is stated that there were no other coaches in Scotland except the infrequent service from Edinburgh to London. In 1779, Hugo Arnot the historian of Edinburgh, born in Leith, stated that 156 coaches travelled the route daily, each carrying 4 passengers at a cost of 2d or 3d per person. In 1799, 40 oil lamps were installed to light the street. This is one of the earliest references to public street lighting in Scotland. The road apparently fell into disrepair because of its frequent use by coaches and was not repaired until 1810 when it was relaid as a 'splendid causeway' raising the road level by around 6 feet. This was 'at great expense by the City of Edinburgh and had a toll erected for its payment'.More
