What a wonderful setting for an autumn Fair. Taking church into the community and community into the church building.

A very interesting and beautiful Church. It has a fascinating history both recent and in the turbulent past of Haddington. A friendly and knowledgeable guide greeted us and pointed out particular aspects to look out for. The churchyard is well maintained and fascinating to wander around too.
