Cottages around village green, New Winton

A small village of East Lothian, located 1¼ miles (2 km) southeast of Tranent and a similar distance northwest of Pencaitland. The village comprises early 19th Century terraced cottages built around three sides of large village green, which have been augmented in the 20th Century by public housing, closing the green on the opposite side of the B6355 road. Today, New Winton is designated as a conservation area, protecting its character. The cottages, which feature crow-stepped gables and gables dormer-heads, are listed for their architectural character. The public housing are bland, although have adopted some of the features of these earlier buildings.

There was once a station at Winton (just to the southwest of the village) which was on the Macmerry Branch of the railway which ran between 1868 and 1960. This was primarily built to serve coal mines in the vicinity of the village.
