Neighbourhood Spotlight… Tranent

Lying ten miles east of Edinburgh, Tranent was once known as a hub for mining. One of the oldest towns in East Lothian, the history of the town is reflected in a number of its buildings, including the Parish Church, which is quietly located within a lovely wooded setting and dates back to the 15th Century. The church is steeped in history, having been looted and badly damaged by the English after the Battle of Pinkie in 1547.
The modern high street of Tranent offers a range of local shops with larger supermarkets nearby, including Asda and Aldi. For adults and children, there is plenty on offer including The Loch Centre, a multi-sport leisure centre with swimming pool and soft play.
Leaving Tranent via the A1, commuters can find themselves in Edinburgh within around 20 minutes to half an hour, making the town popular with commuters as well as those working nearby.
Tranent is home to three primary schools (Windygoul Primary School, Sanderson’s Wynd Primary School and St Martins Primary School) and a secondary school (Ross High School) which accommodate pupils from the town and the surrounding villages.
