Name and dates

Granton Esparto Wharf

Opened on the Granton Branch (Caledonian Railway).


This wharf was at the end of Granton Western Breakwater, on its south (ie harbour) side. Esparto grass was imported here for paper mills. At the south end of the breakwater was a tight north to west curve which allowed trains to run east to Granton and Trinity [2nd] before continuing to the east of Edinburgh.
