Haddington’s John Gray Centre opens its doors
The John Gray Centre, Haddington, has opened its doors to the public for the first time following the £7m conversion of a former pub, bank, hotel and grain store by East Lothian Council.

Designed by Gray Marshall Associates and David Narro Associates the property integrates its disparate progenitors via a dramatic curved glass atrium.

Within this space a new community centre has been fashioned, from which visitors and locals can delve into a rich resource of heritage resources, including images and maps, many of which have lain unseen for years in storage.

The new centre houses a library, history centre, museum, archives and exhibition space.
