This is at the junction of Kilgraston Road, Strathearn Road and Marchmont Road.Marchmont Rd is to the right of the corner; Strathearn Rd is to its left. This is a busy crossroads, being part of the Grange Rd route Salisbury to Morningside at Churchhill.The main road connecting Newington to Churchhill passes along The Grange, one of Edinburgh's leafy suburbs. It starts off as Salisbury Road then Grange Road, Beaufort Road, Strathearn Road, Strathearn Place, Churchhill then Churchhill Place.An atypical vehicle for The Grange, even in its main north-south route of Blackford Avenue.A van with 'attitude' - it spells out its attitude with this 'PARKING SHMARKING NOTICE'. It continues with a claim that there's a method of avoiding parking tickets...Diagonally opposite the corner in the last photo is Grange Cemetery. This west view is towards St Giles Parish Church on Kilgraston Rd. The central stone structure with the driveway on top is 180m long.The stone structure, built from red sandstone, contains dark tunnels and tombs. This is an east view from the central stairway.Facing west from the same standpoint as the previous picture.Before investigating the tunnels, I backed off for a view looking south through the centre towards Dick Place.Two sets of three pillars are on either side of the tunnel entrance, and each set has a face carved into the stone beside it.On the right is a woman's face wearing a disconsolate expression as befits someone whose nose has been disfigured. The bearded man on the left looks more resigned to his fate, although his nose has been chipped too.Just inside the entrance. Two tunnels branch off left and right.Peering into the left tunnel...Past the barred gate some sunlight filters through openings.These tunnels would not normally be accessible. There were some workmen in the cemetery and they use the space for storage of tools and equipment.At the south end of the central tunnel looking back towards Beaufort Road, the middle part of the Grange Road / Strathearn Road link from Newington to Churchhill.Green ivy leaves swamp their stone likenesses on this tombstone.An impressively different stone carving graces this tomb. This vertical shot shows more detail including the fruit borne by this palm tree made of stone. Just beyond the wall, countless passengers on the upstairs deck of the number 5 bus will have glanced over the top totally unaware (as I was) of this intriguing memorial.In the Grange Cemetery I was struck by this headstone for Ann Drysdale which may possibly feature her likeness.A general infrared view of the cemetery which is well maintained in comparison to other ones in Edinburgh.Dalry, Warriston and other cemeteries have this sort of architectural feature, generally with a footpath along the top.A closer look at the right hand stairway.On the way to Blackford Pond from the Grange, crossing the suburban railway. InfraRed photo.Mortonhall Road in the Grange photographed from Blackford Hill.Kilgraston Road is a continuation of the route from Kings Buildings via Blackford Avenue.
