Prestonpans - The shore

Tiny little beach next to a fish and chips shop on the main drag, with a large outfall pipe.
I found 2 bags full of awesome well-rounded pieces with few if any edges before my then-husband made me leave.
Mostly green, clear, and brown, but some blues and yellows.
I could have spent all day there - the best place for sea glass I have ever been!
Public beach, easy to find.
The only downside was that the outfall pipe was rather stinky, and we had to wash not only our hands, but also our glass in very hot water and antibacterial soap, just to be safe.
But it was well worth it! ~ Prestonpans, Scotland by Erin French
Note - Archaelogical diggings at Prestonpans show the existence of potteries as far back as 1750 up to modern times.
There were also some glassworks there in the last 200 years.
These beach must hold some great treasures and we would love to see more photos (see also below).
