Church of the Week

Church of the Week

Dunbar, Lothian

Dunbar St Anne Church in East Lothian, Scotland, is a Grade B Listed Gothic Revival Church that was designed by Sir Robert Rowan Anderson and built between 1888-1890. One of the standout features at Dunbar St Anne’s Church is the interior ceiling, which has been created to resemble an upturned boat. These beautiful beams pay homage to the traditional fishing industry of the coastal town where the church is located. But keeping brilliant features like this ceiling in great condition is no easy feat. It takes planning, teamwork and time. And at this year’s National Church Awards, this work was recognised, as St Anne’s Dunbar was the Scotland winner of the Nayler Awards for Excellence in Church Maintenance.
