About this memory

This picture shows the old Church Hut at the top of Wester Hailes Road.

The buildings, which are on the other side of Wester Hailes Road, are old Workers Cottages belonging to Sighthill Farm which was on the other side of the Calder Road and were demolished in the 1950s.
Overflow wooden huts were erected later near Sighthill Loan and were demolished after the Church was completed

To the left are some of the first prefabs on the Calders Estate.

The work going on in the foreground shows the Bowling Greens for Sighthill Bowling Club being laid out.
