Bridgend Farmhouse

Door open days

30 September 2018 (11:00 - 16:00)


Late 18th century traditional farmhouse building with surrounding steadings, on Craigmillar Castle estate. Fragments of early 16c chapel remain. A hub for local farming life, long before Craigmillar and the Inch housing estates grew around it. Has been a dairy farm, pig farm, cattle farm. Left derelict for 17 years, restored with Lottery funding and reopened as community-owned hub; a place for learning, eating, nourishing of well-being and collecting of local memories.
