Welcome to East Lothian's Heritage: elh.info
This site provides a forum for local groups and individuals with an interest in, and passion for East Lothian's heritage, both natural and cultural.
Local heritage groups have developed their own sections of the site. This not only gives groups the opportunity to share information, announce events such as talks, workshops, visits and other activities but a chance to have wider discussions about how best to preserve, promote and celebrate East Lothian's history and environment.
This website is also a way for interested individuals to find out more about local heritage groups, such as history societies.

What do we mean by Heritage?
Heritage includes not only ancient artefacts, archaeological sites and historic buildings, but also cultural traditions, the natural environment, gardens and designed landscapes, and much more. In short, the whole of what makes up the East Lothian that we have inherited - created, moulded and changed by past generations.
