Name and dates

Heriot (1848-1969)

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


Description

This was a two platform station with staggered platforms, one on either side of a level crossing.

There was a goods yard at the north end, east side of the line and approached from the north.

The station house survived as a house. The platform and trackbed were cleared on the north side of the level crossing. Removal of the ballast took years.

The house, goods goods line and the platform south of the former level crossing were all removed during re-opening. The level crossing was not re-opened, being replaced by a road bridge over the line to the south.

The nearest stations were Tynehead (north) and Fountainhall (south).

Hangingshaw Quarry, to the south, was railway served.
