A Midlothian nursery is putting some heavy duty pipes to some good use.
The water pipes are normally deep underground carrying drinking water across the regions.
But Scottish Water has provided Milton Bridge Nursery, near Penicuik, with two sections of pipes from the £130 million Glencorse Water Treatment Works development.
The water pipes are now being used as play equipment for around 50 young children who attend the nursery.
The pipes were recently installed in the garden and playground at the nursery’s annexe in Auchendinny. They are held in place by a wooden structure created by David Watt, whose grandson attends the nursery.
