St Andrews Chapel, in ruins - North Berwick, East Lothian
There's not a lot left of this ancient chapel, once a resting place for pilgrims to St Andrews
in Fife, on the far side of the Firth of Forth.
The ferry was preferable to the long journey up to Queensferry or even Stirling to
cross the River Forth into Fife.
The original wooden buildings were said to date from the 7th century before the stone
version was built in the 13th century.
The main chapel collapsed in 1656 and all that's now left standing is the porch, which was
later used in the 1850s as a bothy by the local Rocket Men - The Marine Rescue Service
Rocket Patrol, officially - whose job was to fire rescue lines to floundering ships, with
varying degrees of success.
In these photos you can see that the ground pattern of some of the walls continues
over the path to the right and is cleverly shown in contrasting slabs, to indicate the
full extent of the original buildings.
