Billboards for Newhaven

My neck of the woods (as they say) is a great place for doing a daily walk. I can change it up each day: stay on the streets, get onto the walkways, follow the leafy Water of Leith, look at the harbour, breathe in the sea… I am literally spoiled for choice.

I am reminded of just how fabulous the area is when I chance upon something like the “Billboard for Newhaven”.

The Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop is on Hawthornvale, a hidden wee street in Newhaven, and they’re using the otherwise neglected billboards as a public exhibition space. Quite aside from the unexpected-ness of seeing these two works, the colours, shapes, and intrigue of it all, made my day.
