This link to the NLS is the best historical map I've seen that shows where the Molendinar runs. It does cover the whole city but it is quite detailed.

I thought this snap , which I've been meaning to take for ages, would finish this topic off nicely.

And this one just to give it...... eh..... a little context.

Kinda yeah, I think it's Viewpark Avenue by that point. But just up form the station anyway. Not too hard to find, maybe a bit easier if they gave it a coat of paint once in a while. Then again its current state sort of fits really.

The Molendinar burn was central to the development of the early medieval
town, up until the 17th century the burn was an essential water supply to the
townspeople encouraging trade and commerce. Mills were situated along the
Molendinar, the textile and craft industries used the water sources in the
preparation of their goods and the town grew up around the burn. The growth of
the town eastwards was prevented as the need for a good water supply was
essential to the life of the burgh. Today the Molendinar has been absorbed into
the landscape, and can only just be seen along Duke Street.

The molindinar also continues through the college lands, this image of 1520 shows that the high st curve has been there for centuries.

The molidinar burn lasted for nearly 2 centuries. :)

Here's a photo of the Burn I took from the High Street Goods Yard site showing the original tunnel under Duke Street and another
adjoining tunnel joining the Molendinar possibly coming from the Tennant's Brewery from underneath the Great Eastern Hotel?
