First public viewing of two Stone Soldiers in Musselburgh 

On the 474th anniversary of The Battle of Pinkie Cleugh, Friday 10 September 2021, Taylor Wimpey East Scotland welcomed East Lothian Provost John McMillan to the first official viewing of two ‘larger than life’ sandstone soldier sculptures that have been created to recognise the rich heritage and history of the local area.

Impressive stone soldier sculptures

He was joined by representatives from various local community groups including The Old Musselburgh Club, The Pinkie Cleugh Battlefield Group and the Pinkie Cleugh Tapestry Project to see these majestic pieces of work situated on Battlefield Road, the site of the battlefield where the last great battle took place between the kingdoms of Scotland and England.

The impressive stone soldier sculptures were created by local East Lothian sculptor Gardner Molloy and they form an important part of the public realm within Taylor Wimpey’s Almond Park development in Musselburgh.
