Tranent Parish Church

Tranent Parish Church represents over a thousand years of continuous worship on or near its present site, exactly how long is not known. Legend has a chapel being founded here by missionary monks in the 8th century, associated with the work established at Lindisfame by St Cuthbert. It was supposedly dedicated to St Martin of Tours, patron saint of beggars and cavalrymen, and founder of the monastic system in the West. This is, however, only legend, without any known proof. for more click here
