East Lothian Antiquarian and Field Naturalists’ Society

The East Lothian Antiquarian and Field Naturalists’ Society, established in 1924, is membership organisation and a charity.

Members can partake in a usually very diverse programme of events, outings and lectures throughout the year.

The society has published its Transactions in over 30 volumes, and along with numerous other one-off publications, this provides a fascinating repository of the county’s rich heritage.

The physical printed volumes are available for purchase and in early 2018 the first 30 volumes and one-off publications were made available to the wider public on their website.

At the same time the Fourth Statistical Account of East Lothian was redesigned, using modern software, and transferred to a locally based hosting platform.
