East Lothian on Wikipedia.

Aberlady, the Parish Church. Bill Henderson. A winter view, and the East Window, both Revd. Norman Faulds. Norman advises that the central panel of the window is based on Botticelli's "Madonna and Child" which is now in the National Gallery of Scotland. The fabric of the church is late C15 (tower), C16 and C17 (aisles), with a Victorian renovation (1887). Link.

Belhaven, Church of Scotland. NT 6678. Bill Henderson.
Bolton, the Parish Kirk. James Denham. Link.

East Linton, Prestonkirk Church (CoS). Another view. NT 592 778. Grade A listed. The former St. Kentigern (R.C., closed before 1990) on High Street, now a private residence. Another view. NT 591 773. Link. The former Free Church. It pre-dates 1879, when it is reported as being "improved". The spire is of the "Rhenish helm" type, and rare in Britain. NT 552 792. Three views of the former United Presbyterian Church - 1, 2, 3. What may be this building shows on the OS map of 1854-5; it is certainly shown on the 1894 map, and on the next map (1907, which is after the union) it shows as "U. F. Church". It continues as such on the 1938 map, but by the 1957 edition it shows as "U. F. Church (Dis.)". There is some indication that it was subsequently in use as a Masonic Hall. NT 592 773. All Howard Richter (2013).
East Saltoun. Bill McKenzie.

Garvald, the Parish Kirk. James Denham.
Gifford, the Yester Parish Church. Jim Napier and James Denham advise that the Rev.
