Every year the residents of Stockbridge get together and throw over 2,000 ducks (one for every year, so 2015 will see 2,015 ducks take part) over the side of the Stock Bridge and into the Water Of Leith, where they are carried and shepherded downstream to be caught by our brave, soggy “Duck Wardens”.

Each duck is numbered, and the sponsors of various winning ducks win prizes donated by many local businesses, The Bailie included.  It’s an excellent way to raise some money for charity, and a good excuse for a little barhopping by the regulars of the many local pubs and restaurants.
