In the centre of this image can be seen the remains of a concrete causeway which was part of the Apple Rock Pier. Apple Rock Pier was used by excursion steamers and regular ferries from the 1890s to the 1920s to and from various ports in the Firth of Forth. Nothing remains of the wooden parts of the pier which extended out into the water.

NO4900 : Elie Parish Church by Bill Kasman
The church was opened for worship on 17 April 1639. 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. This is a view of the rear of the building: note the steeple which has a clock on each of the other three sides but not on this side because, when it was added to the main building in 1726, there were no houses to the north of the church and hence no need to place a clock on that side! The gate to the left of the image leads to a path which runs through the churchyard to the High Street. There is a small recycling facility to the right of the image.
