Historic Haddington Church

According to Historic Scotland The church of St Martin in the Nungait was maintained by the Cistercian sisters of St Mary’s Nunnery, which lay 1km to the east. John Knox, the architect of the Protestant Reformation in Scotland (in 1560), was born in the Nungait. He probably went to St Martin’s as a boy. All that remains of the church is the rectangular nave. The chancel to its east was pulled down at the Reformation.
