Field Visit (23 July 1913)

In the bell chamber of new St.Andrew's Church is a bell measuring 2 ¼ feet from skirt to crown with a diameter of 1 foot 5 inches at crown and 2 feet 9 inches at skirt. Below an anthemion cresting is the inscription in Roman capitals: ‘Jacobus Monteith me fecit Edinb--ugh pro Templo de North Berick anno domini 1642 spero meliora.’ Below the inscription are two thistles alternating with two shields each surmounted by a crown, and bearing a hammer.

RCAHMS 1924, visited 23 July 1913.

Publication Account (1981)

The church at the harbour was in use until the year 1656. Its successor on the south side of High Street was not completed until 1664. That church was apparently rebuilt at the end of the eighteenth century, but now lies in ruins, and its successor in turn was erected in 1882. It serves the burgh today.
