This station had a long curving single platform. The site is now a caravan park. This photograph is taken from a road bridge which is still in a good state of repair.

On my last visit the site was about to be built on. The line was originally intended to run on to North Berwick, this would have continued on through the red building in the right hand photograph. The left hand photograph looks towards Aberlady, and the right hand shows ther terminus from off the end of the platform.
