Aberlady (1898-1932)

Opened on the Aberlady, Gullane and North Berwick Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station about a third of a mile south of the village.

The station was laid out with plenty of space on a near west-east alignment. It was approached from the south west. The platform was on the north side of the line.

The goods yard was to the north, with sidings loading banks approached from the south west.

The signal box, opened with the station, was at the west end of the platform.

When built the station was to the south east of the village, which has expanded a little towards the site.

The signal box closed in 1921, replaced with a ground frame.

Closure to passengers was in 1932 and the line closed completely in 1964.

The site is now a caravan park. The long curving platform remains and can be seen from the road bridge at the east end of the site.
