From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

Completing Westburn and Morvenside

We recenty took a look at Westburn and Morvenside as new homes started to be built in this area.  Westburn Village had an official opening in October 1995.

The inspiration for the design of the houses and streets was a traditional North East fishing village.  The Sentinel reported on the completion of the new homes and you can read the full story by clicking here on Sentinel October 1995

 Wester Hailes Community Housing Association also reported on the celebrations in its newsletter and you can see this report by clicking on Newsletter October 1995.

The completion of Morvenside’s development came slightly later at the end of 1997.  The following pictures chart the construction of homes there.
