Our answer to this question is as follows:
This carved stone was mounted on the gable end of the former Courier building at the foot of Newton Port. It shows a biblical scene: ‘The Flagellation of Christ’. It may have come from one of Haddington’s missing chapels. Two Christian burials, undated, were found in the carpark in recent years suggesting there may be a religious site nearby.
The planned construction of a block of flats adjacent to the carpark will be preceded by an archaeological survey. Watch this space!
The stone is now in the National Museum of Scotland.
