Dean Village is one of those magical places - it manages to feel like a little country place in the middle of a city.

The best way to enjoy is to walk to it via the Water of Leith walkway. This means you will soak in the quiet atmosphere as you approach and appreciate the natural beauty around you.

The speckles on the pictures are cherry blossom and birds. Both were abundant.

The architectural styles are many and varied - it all adds to the charm.

There are several weirs in the river and quite a few of the buildings were mills. Another one was a bakers - look out for the explanatory signs.

Despite being called a village - the houses are tall, not cottage like for the most part.

There are some smaller cottage type terraces. The colour and texture of these is amazing.

I love the variety of doors and windows.

One of my favourite buildings is the "Bentley Specialist". I really take an interest in Ghost Signs, so this is a real joy.

There are several tall bridges of the river. This one is at the Britannia Hotel in Belford Road.
