Aberlady Parish Church, East Lothian
Aberlady Parish Church, East Lothian is a Church of Scotland parish.

It has a fifteenth-century tower, the body of the church recast in 1886 by William Young. Stained glass by Edward Frampton, London 1889. Eighth-century cross. Marble monument attributed to Canova.

Of the church built in the 15th cent. few parts survive, mainly the tower. The church was extended and re-furbished in 1773. This 1773 Church lasted over a hundred years and the last Communion Service in the "square Kirk" was held on the 18th April 1886 before a major restoration. On the 2nd June 1887 it is recorded in the Kirk Session Notes "The New Church, built by the Earl of Wemyss, this day opened for worship."

In the mid-1980s the parishes of Aberlady and Gullane were merged and the Manse is now in Gullane. In Aberlady, the Church is complemented by the Kirk Stables in main street, next to the old Aberlady Manse
