Location type

Station


Name and dates

Cross Roads (1831-1855)

Opened on the Dundee and Newtyle Railway.


Description

This former station was to the north of Dundee Law and the Law Tunnel. A station house remains standing which was on the east side of the line immediately south of a level crossing with Clepington Road.

After the station closed in 1855, with the new deviation avoiding the inclines and Law Tunnel opening via Lochee, the building became a private house. It remained in use until the early 1990s. It is decaying slowly. The track side of the bridge has a roundel, perhaps for a clock.

It is now in the grounds of King's Cross Hospital.
