The Coldingham Luckenbooth

The Coldingham Luckenbooth

Luckenbooths were lockable merchant stalls found in Edinburgh in the middle ages. It was chosen as the name of this building because it reflects the way that a lockable post office is incorporated into a community space.

The Luckenbooth is owned by Coldingham Sands Community Company. The Company is a charity that promotes sustainable development within Coldingham and St Abbs.

Following the unexpected closure of Coldingham's post office in 2009, the Community Company developed plans to combine a new post office with an interpretation centre. The vision was supported by Friends of Coldingham Priory and Scottish Borders Council.

This building would not have been possible without the hard work of the Directors and Members of the Coldingham Sands Community Company plus many local people and organisations.

It was designed by Bain Swan Architects and built by Alan Cook - their contributions went far beyond their contractural obligations. Thanks are also due to the many commired local building subcontractors.

The Luckenbooth project was made possible because of financial support from:

Scottish Borders Leader Programme
Future Balance and VIRIDOR Credits
SBC Community Grant Scheme
SBC Landfill Communities Fund
Berwickshire Community Council Forum (Environmental)
Berwickshire Association for Voluntary Services
Coldingham Organisations and Businesses
