NO4900 : War Memorial and church by Bill Kasman
War Memorial with Elie Church behind. The church was opened for worship on 17th April 1639. The steeple was not part of the original church but was added in 1726 and is a bit of a curiosity in that it has only three clock faces. Since there were no houses to the north of the church when the steeple was built there was no need to place a clock on that side!
Note: 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.
