Aberlady Parish Church

Client: Aberlady Parish Church Kirk Session

The A Listed picturesque Parish Church stands, surrounded by a graveyard, on a prominent site in the historic East Lothian village of Aberlady. Whilst the oldest parts of the building, including the tower, date from the 15th century, much of the church was remodelled in the late 19th century when highly decorative stained glass windows were also installed.

Its fabric has been well maintained but was of an age when its roof coverings and external stonework was in need of a more substantial programme of repairs as materials decayed and reached the end of their useful lives. 

LDN delivered a comprehensive programme of external fabric repairs funded by a number of agencies including Historic Scotland and the HLF. Our conservation strategy was to prioritise repair work and to do “as much as necessary but as little as possible”. The work included re-roofing, structural repairs in the tower, consolidation of stonework and repointing and the restoration of the weather vane.
