Old Dean and Stockbridge
Old Dean and Stockbridge Old Dean and Stockbridge. Although separate districts of Edinburgh, Dean and Stockbridge lie close to one another on the Water of Leith. Dean is the older settlement, with historic milling connections and a number of former industrial buildings which have now been restored and converted to residential use. The elegant Dean Bridge forms a focal point of the neighbourhood. Stockbridge has historically been the location of a number of Edinburgh institutions and is still home to The Edinburgh Academy, while the former Royal Edinburgh Institution for the Deaf and Dumb has now relocated elsewhere and its premises absorbed by the school. Well-known local landmarks include the houses of the Colonies and the former Dean Orphan Hospital, now an acclaimed art gallery.
