Leith Walk has added a new chapter to its history, after signs of a medieval roadway were uncovered by archaeologists working on the latest plans to extend the city’s tram line.

The find, as part of a dig on the tram route between York Place and Newhaven, is believed to be the oldest part of the famous thoroughfare, with the cobble-lined causeway between 600-900 years old.

Whatever else they uncover, it will be added to the fascinating history of one of Edinburgh’s longest and oldest streets.
