As part of Docomomo SNG, Zone Architects did some research on this development, published in the Docomomo SNG report no. 5 (Mar 2003). John & Margaret Richards, who were part of the original team of masterplanners / architects call it ‘Glassel Park, Longniddry’ and you can find more information in the newsletter.

Directions: If driving from Edinburgh take the first left after the road under the railway on the right, ie drive into the heart of the village and turn off the main road past the S bend. Then, drive past the Co-op on the right and veer left: the houses are in front of you, first left but mostly second left again.
