Report on 3 March Walk

Starting from the Toby (Corstorphine) at 9.15 am we travelled to Melville St and took the limited stop bus to Haddington's Corn Exchange.  We then walked through the lovely old buildings of the town to the Nungate Bridge (with its hanging hook!) and past the ancient St Mary's Church along by the river Tyne, passing Poldrakes Mill and waterwheel.  In the lovely sunshine we followed the tree-lined Tyne for a time until the signposts led us back on a circular route to the Nungate Bridge.  At the other side of the bridge is the Waterside Inn (in the distance in photograph 2)  where we had a lovely lunch.  

In the crisp sunshine it was a very enjoyable walk.
