Travel to Wellsprings is straightforward:
Newcraighall is on the eastern edge of Edinburgh, just at the city boundary. Wellsprings is easy to find – a large, brick victorian church building adjacent to the Primary School and GL Floors.• by car, coming from the west or south, take the Edinburgh Bypass A720 to the junction with the A1, turn left (travelling north) and take the first exit (‘Newcraighall’). Turn right towards Musselburgh (A6095), and proceed under the railway bridge into Newcraighall village. Wellsprings is a couple of hundred metres along on the right.From Musselburgh, take the A6095 past Newhailes House into Newcraighall village. Wellsprings will be on your left, just beyond GL Floors.Parking on site is limited (about 9 spaces) and during the school term is restricted to Mon-Fri 9.00am-10.30pm and after 3.45pm. Free parking is available in a nearby street 2 minutes away, just beyond GL Floors, and ample parking at the Park & Ride car park by Newcraighall Station (50p for the day, 5 mins walk) but visitors are requested not to park on the pavement opposite. On Saturday afternoons and SUNDAYS you can park in the GL Floors carpark next door (12 spaces).
• by train, from Edinburgh Waverley or Haymarket stations, direct to Newcraighall Park & Ride station (7 days a week 06.23 until 23.15) every half an hour in peak times, just two stops from Waverley to Newcraighall, takes 10 mins (This is the Tweedbank train that runs on the new Borders railway line). Leaving the station car park, turn right under the railway bridge. Wellsprings is a couple of hundred metres along on the right (you will see it clearly ahead) – about 7 minutes walk from the platform.
Trains also run regularly (7 days a week) to Musselburgh Station, adjacent to Queen Margaret University. Walk past the university and follow the path round to Newcraighall Park, turning right in the village to arrive at Wellsprings. You will see the building clearly from the station across the fields, but it takes about 15 mins to walk.
• by bus, take the single-decker Lothian no.30 bus from the centre of the city heading eastwards towards Musselburgh. Stops can be found at Lothian Road, Princes St, North bridge, South Clerk St and Dalkeith Road. Buses run about every 10 mins during the day, and there is a night bus too. The journey takes about 35 mins from Princes St; the bus stop is opposite Wellsprings. Return buses stop outside too.
