Tucked away in the quiet street of Rotten Row is this Scottish Episcopal Church.

NT4999 : The Granary, Elie Harbour by Bill Kasman
Seen here across the harbour from The Terrace. The Granary (now private flats) is built on what was once an island which could only be reached at low tide. In 1835 engineer Robert Stevenson surveyed the harbour and the plans he produced began to be implemented in 1853 when Sir William Baird bought Elie Estate. The present causeway, road and pier were completed within two years. This development led to the resurgence of Elie as a harbour and port.

NO4900 : Elie church by Bill Kasman
The church was opened for worship on 17 April 1639. The steeple was not part of the original church but was added in 1726 and is a curiosity in that it has only three clock faces. There being no houses to the north of the church at the time there was no need to place a clock on that side! The path on the right leads through the churchyard to Kirkpark Road. The path on the left leads to a garden of remembrance.
In 2009 Elie church joined with Colinsburgh and Kilconquhar Churches and its official name is now the East Neuk Trinity Church and was also linked with St Monans church in 2017.
