There have been at least three churches dedicated to St. Andrew in North Berwick. The two earlier churches have both left substantial remains. The oldest stands on Kirk Ness at NT 554 855, and went out of use when the east end fell into the sea in 1656. There remain some foundations, and the porch, which is Grade B listed. It says the church porch is possibly 15th century, the church itself being of the 13th. Howard Richter (2013).
