Links Road, Longniddry

Longniddry is a village in East Lothian, Scotland, with a population of 2,613 (2001 census).

Longniddry is primarily a dormitory town for commuters to Edinburgh, with good transport links by road and rail (Longniddry railway station is on the North Berwick Line) to the capital. The village is predominantly middle-class in character: over 80% of residents own their own homes, and more than a third of people are in professional or managerial occupations.

The village is largely quiet and has good local, community based resources, including local shops, a library and a community centre. Like many costal towns within East Lothian, Longniddry benefits from its beautiful sandy beach adjacent to the golf course. This stretch of local coastline is known as Longniddry Bents.

For nearly 300 years, Longniddry was a coal mining village, the industry closed in 1924. Weaving was also carried out here.

18th century Gosford House, home of the Earl of Wemyss and March stands on the eastern edge of the village.

[edit] Longniddry Primary School

Longniddry Primary School is located in the village. It educates around 350 pupils. In the May 1999 inspection by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Education most aspects of the school's performance were rated Very Good.[1] In 2007 Head Teacher Ann McLanachan won the Scottish Daily Record Award for Lifetime Achievement after 30 years service at this school.[2] The Scottish Parliament Minister for Education and Young People, Cathy Jamieson visited the school in late 2002 and described its approach to literacy as "using an imaginative approach that has been developed by a range of people in the school who are part of the school team ... I want such good practice to be highlighted."[3] The International Union for Health Promotion and Education described Longniddry in 2005 as "one of Scotland’s active primary schools".[4]
