West Bryans Siding

The site of the former exchange sidings at the east end of Newbattle Viaduct seen from the gated entrance off the B6482 Dalhousie Road in 2019. The sidings fell into disuse prior to WW1 following the introduction of improved facilities at the nearby Lady Victoria Pit. Apart from one or two old containers the area is almost clear. A fairly recent addition is the wooden fence along its south western edge. This appeared in 2015 during construction of the Borders Railway, which now runs just beyond. See image 71036
