East Linton

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Scotland  /  East Lothian  /  East Linton
East Linton is a town in East Lothian, Scotland, situated on the River Tyne and A199 road (former A1 road) five miles east of Haddington, with a population of 1,731 (Census 2011). (In 1881 it had a population of 1,042).DerivationOriginally called "Linton", the village probably gets its name from the Linn (a waterfall) on the river which it grew alongside. It was later renamed "East Linton" to distinguish it from West Linton in Peebleshire when the railways were built.Today, only one church remains active, Prestonkirk Parish Church which is also the old name of the parish. The village is now, along with Stenton and Whittingehame; part of the parish of Traprain. The original church was founded by Baldred of Tyninghame, also known as 'St Baldred of the Bass', in the sixth century. The current church tower dates from 1631, while the main building is from 1770. It was enlarged in 1824 and the interior was redesigned in 1892. The St Baldred window was established in 1959. There used to be a free church in Scotland ( St Andrew ), a Roman Catholic church (St Kentigern ) and a Methodist hall.
