Greyfriars Kirk opens to visitors at 11.30 on Monday 17th August. We’d be glad to see you if you decide to come in and take a look around the historic building. The illustration by Phillimore shows Old Greyfriars. Bobby is buried in front of the gable end of the church.

East Lothian

The eighteen-pounder standing on the Half Moon Battery pointed east. It was said that the station master at North Berwick set his clock when he heard the signal. Jan Bondeson’s ‘East Lothian’ is now available in the bookshops. The book contains the work of R.P. Phillimore the postcard artist who lived in the town.
