Sharpdale

(Cameron Bridge)

A location in S Edinburgh, Sharpdale (sometimes referred to as Cameron Bridge) lay on what is now the not-very-accessible northeastern section of the Cameron Toll roundabout, 2 miles (3 km) southeast of the city centre. In the 19th C. there were a row of buildings including a toll-house and an infant school here. Cameron Bridge crossed the Pow Burn here long before the present-day double railway bridge. The name is remembered today in Sharpdale Loan, given in 1984 to the road entering Cameron Toll Shopping Centre.
