Imperial Dock Grain Warehouse, Leith

Built in 1933/4 the imperial grain warehouse at Leith is an monumental 15-bay flat-roofed concrete grain elevator and warehouse with front block rising 5-storeys over storage base. Expanded twice in the 1950s &  1960s its operation life extended well into the 21st century. It bosts much of it’s original machinary and is in remarkably good condition. Such is its importance to the industrial era of the time it is currnetly Category B listed – this in itself proves a problem for any redevelopment and continues to sit derelict around vast areas of cleared dockland.
