Corn Exchange

The Corn Exchange is located on the south side of Court Street in Haddington, close to the East Lothian County Buildings. Built in 1853, the exchange was designed by a local architect, Francis Farquharson. The building has a massive timber roof, with top-lighting provided to the main hall.

Farmers met at the Corn Exchange each week and it was the location of many important civic functions. During both World Wars the Exchange provided quarters for troops.

Today the building is used for concerts, ceilidhs and other social and community events.
