At the John Gray Centre, the East Lothian Council Archives service and the Local History Centre join up. The Archives aim to inform, delight, and engage. It is our responsibility to collect, care for, and make accessible the historical records of the county. As a result we hold a large collection of original source material going back almost 700 years. The collection includes manuscripts, minute books, and images relating to many aspects of East Lothian’s history. We are also the repository for records of East Lothian Council and its predecessors.
