Visit Tranent and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Tranent, East Lothian. A parish and police burgh, Tranent is situated 11 miles South East of Prestonpans and 9 miles East of Edinburgh. It is the centre of a large mining area.
The old parish church, said to have been built about the middle of the 11th century and demolished in 1797, is now represented by only a small ruin used as a mausoleum. The present church, commanding a fine view of the Firth of Forth, was opened in 1801.
Colonel Gardiner was carried to the manse from the field of Prestonpans, and was buried at the West end of the old church in 1745, but no tombstone now marks his grave.
