St Andrew's Old Kirk, North Berwick
St Andrew's Old Kirk, North Berwick
Situated on Anchor Green, near the Seabird Centre in North Berwick. There may have been a church on this site from the 7th century when St Baldred arrived in North Berwick from Lindisfarne. In the 12th century a larger stone church was built on Anchor Green. The last burial at the Old Kirk was between 1649 -1656 after which the church fell into ruin. During February 2000 over thirty skeletons were discovered on the site of the old St Andrew Kirk graveyard.
