Haddington

Haddington is situated in East Lothian, about twenty miles east of Edinburgh. Haddington, at one time, was the fourth largest city in Scotland, although the population now stands at only 9000. Located on the River Tyne, the town was at the centre of the Scottish Agricultural Revolution in the eighteenth century. It is a town of wide streets, notable for its Town House, built by William Adam in 1748. Haddington was the scene of one of the longest town sieges in history, when, in the sixteenth century, occupying English forces were besieged by the Scots and their French Allies for eighteen months. Important buildings include the Haddington Town House, The Corn Exchange and the County courthouse. The map below shows the features of the town as it was in the middle of last century.
