The Dene











The Dene is a peculiar bridge and stairway over the Water of Leith in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. It featured in a scene in the excellent Edinburgh set horror film Outcast. I haven't been able to find out anything about the history of the Dene though, so if anyone knows anything please let me know!
There are lots of interesting bridges over the Water of Leith, you can see photos of some of the others here, here and here.

As ever, coloured text takes you to other pages, where you can find out more!

I'd love to get lost there. I can see why it would have been used as a horror film setting. I can well imagine Rebus wandering there. Sorry about that...

A bridge? I thought when I first saw it that i was looking at a castle. It is beautiful.

A bit of head scratching involved here but I think I've got it. Are these the steps that lead down to the grassy bit with St bernards
well at the other end. Certainly not where you'd want to hang about after dark.

It is a rather elaborate design.

Like Ciel, «Louis» can see why this would be used in a horror movie!

In any case, the horror movie that is known as San Francisco Bay Daily Photo welcomes this contribution to Sunday Bridges.
