main image Granary, Aberlady, East Lothian
Granaries, for storing outward bound grain, are a common feature along the east coast, mostly dating from the 18th and 19th centuries.

Aberlady, a tidal creek, was the port of the burgh of Haddington – the county town and the principal market. The building is three storeys high, with a hoist over the central, top floor doorway.

Warehousing for goods, arriving or leaving, was a necessary adjunct to a harbour.
