An online historical walk. Saturday 14 November 2020, 8.00pm
The good, the good, bad and the crafty” Liz Beevers
Being unable to do the walk this year we present a brief video teaser of the walk that Liz would have done - and promises to do next year. Liz Beevers, PBF committee member and local historian, using Colinton History Society’s book ‘Colinton Characters’ as a base, this video explores the route from Juniper Green to Colinton Kirkyard to find the graves of Patrick Gordon, public health local hero, James Gillespie, snuff miller and merchant, and Phoebe Anna Traquair the first important professional woman artist of modern Scotland, according to the National Museum of Scotland. Each has left visible traces enroute and a legacy which is up for discussion.
