George Hotel Building in Haddington
Work is now under way to transform a landmark building in Haddington town centre into 15 flats, a cafe and an art gallery, reports the East Lothian Courier.
Ambitious plans to revive the former George Hotel and bring it back to life were approved by East Lothian Council at the end of July 2016.
Work is already under way on the building, at the eastern end of the High Street, with Jim Wilkie, director of MNH (Haddington) Ltd, keen to see things moving forward.
The cafe would occupy part of the ground floor, with the retail unit on part of the ground floor and also the first floor.
Then flats would then be created over four floors, including the ground floor.

Prepare a 10-20 year VISION to secure the long term economic, environmental and civic vitality of Haddington Town Centre.
The project is founded on a broad campaign of engagement with local people, businesses, public agencies and community groups which will include two public events in Haddington Centre, in late February and late March. The Vision is intended to illustrate how Haddington Town Centre can remain attractive, competitive and popular in an era of online shopping, out of town retailing and economic change. The study will inform and complement East Lothian Council’s Haddington Town Centre Strategy. Local residents and other interested parties are invited to comment and offer suggestions through an online survey at tinyurl.com/haddington

Historic Haddington Buildings
Haddington Town House (above), 1748, originally by William Adam but little of his work remains: Haddington Town House
The adjacent building to the south-west is the Haddington Court House (below) by William Burn:
A court-room and assembly room were added to the Court Street (west) side of Adam’s Town House in 1788, over the colonnaded Haddington Market.
Haddington has more than 200 listed buildings. Haddington Architecture reaches its climax with not only the Town House but the nearby Court House (on Court Street), designed by William Burn. Leith’s Custom House interior remodelling is also by William Burn, Architect.
The Jane Welsh Carlyle House, childhood home of the woman who later married the famous Thomas Carlyle, is accessed at the west end of Haddington’s High Street. The centre of the town is carefully controlled with input from HADAS, the local Architecture Society.
Haddington – Views from around the Town
Haddington was made a royal burgh by David I in the 12th century and was the birthplace of Alexander II and (possibly?) John Knox.
Context : Brief History of Haddington
Haddington was a strategically important town, the capital of Haddingtonshire; Aberlady was its port. The Siege of Haddington took place in the mid 16th century when the English barricaded the town against the joint forces of Scots and French.
Nungate Bridge is reputedly the oldest remaining in Scotland, and on the west side is where the French garrison gathered in 1549 (to assist the Scottish) to defeat the English holding siege to Haddington. At that time, in the days of Henry VIII, the Scottish Parliament met in Haddington.
