Name and dates

Laverocklaw Siding

Opened on the North British Railway.


This short siding was on the west side of the line and approached from the north. It was 40 chains south of Coatyburn Siding and west of Haddington. The siding served Laverockfarm, to the west, which was connected by a dirt track.

The location of the siding can still be seen, particularly as the boundary fence accommodated it.

Just to the north, on the east side of the line, is a small pond. This existed in railway days. Today there is a bench here.
