North Esk Church, Musselburgh

Opened in 1838 and recently restored, this fine church was designed by the Scottish architect William Burn (1789–1870). Among Burn’s best-known Edinburgh buildings are the Edinburgh Academy, St John’s Princes Street and North Leith Parish Church. He was a master of several different styles, and was regarded as a pioneer of Scottish baronial style in buildings like Balintore Castle and the Sheriff Court at Inverness Castle. The interior at North Esk features an all-round horseshoe gallery and a high vaulted ceiling. There are seven stained glass windows (one by Ballantine and Gardiner, 1892), a pink alabaster font and a fine brass eagle lectern. The organ, behind the central pulpit, was built by Abbot and Smith of Leeds in 1904.
