Juniper Green (1874-1943)

Opened on the Balerno Branch (Caledonian Railway).

Description

This was a single platform station. The platform was on the north (village) side of the line. The Water of Leith was just to the south, alongside the line, with a footbridge crossing to the south bank,

On the north side of the line, accessed from the east, was the goods yard with a goods shed. To the north of these sidings was a mill lade for Wright's Mill (Corn) and Woodhall Bank Mill (Snuff).

There was a signal box, opened with the line but closed by 1889. A replacement opened in 1901 and closed in 1939.

The station closed to passengers in 1943 and the line closed altogether in 1967.

The trackbed is now a footpath.
