The Vennel - Edinburgh

Chris Clark

Kirknewton, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

The Vennel runs down the hill beside George Heriot’s school running towards the north into the Grassmarket, opposite Edinburgh Castle.

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1969) Brodie lives on Admiral Terrace, in Edinburgh, with most of the school drama taking place in the Donaldson building on Henderson Row, now owned by Edinburgh Academy, which serves as Marcia Blaine’s. Miss Brodie takes her girls to trips to Greyfriars Kirkyard, and the Vennel off the Grassmarket for fine views of the castle. Mr Lloyd the art master has his studio across the street from Greyfriars on the corner of Candlemaker Row and Merchant Street, while his rival invites Miss Brodie to his home in Cramond (Barnbougle Castle in the film).
