Station


Name and dates

Charlesfield Halt (1942-1961)

Opened on the Edinburgh and Hawick Railway (North British Railway).


Description

This was a two timber platform halt built in connection with the nearby Charlesfield Munitions Factory. Platforms were to the south of the tall bridge over the roadway. Oddly the southbound platform was longer than the northbound.

Nothing remains of the platform today and there was some ballast recovery in the 1980s. The gate for the southbound platform at road level remains as do hints of the paths to the platforms.

Walkers may wish to note that the next bridge to the south of the former station is extremely rotten.
