Ironmills Steps update

Ironmills steps Nov 17

 

The bottom gate at Ironmills Steps, Dalkeith, has now been opened to allow public access to the bridge, offering a view of the extensive works completed on the slope to date.

Work to reopen the steps continues with designs being drawn up for a new wooden step structure which will be fitted adjacent to the wooden retaining wall on the slope.

Landslip problems

This work is still to be costed and will not be fitted until the slope is deemed stable and finances are in place.

The steps from Cemetery Road to the Ironmills Park have been closed since January 2016 because of landslip problems.
