St Mary's Church at night
St Mary's Church at night
An interesting building as the tower was ruined and has been recently restored - it even includes fibreglass roof beams inside.

"St Mary's Haddington was known as the 'Lamp of Lothian' due to its beauty and spiritual significance. The church was badly damaged during the Siege of Haddington (1548-9) when the English barricaded the town against the joint forces of Scots and French. At the request of John Knox, born in Haddington, St Mary's nave was restored and used as the parish church for 400 years, while the choir and transepts remained open to the elements. A major restoration between 1970 & 1973 returned the church's eastern half. The ‘Lamp of Lothian’ contains alabaster tombs in the Lauderdale Aisle."
