Give yourself plenty of time to learn about the reconstruction and the church history. The adjacent can grave yards and gardens are very pretty and peaceful. The docents are very friendly and knowledgeable.

The inside of this Church is beautiful with some lovely stained glass windows. Peaceful and friendly staff with good, free information handouts. It's incredible to think almost half of it had no roof until 1971/2! A must see when in Haddington.

I came to see 'Breaking the Rules' at St Mary's Church, which formed part of the Lammermuir Festival. The volunteers and staff couldn't do enough for you, and the event as a whole was just fantastic.
