Name and dates

Springfield Mill (1717-1966)

Served by the Esk Valley Railway.


Description

This paper mill was on the east bank of the River North Esk in Polton. The mill was, from 1867, rail served by the Esk Valley Railway.

The railway approached from the north east, passing round the west side of the Polton terminus station before passing over a level crossing to enter the mill site. Lines then divided to serve the northern and southern sides of the mill.

The railway closed in 1964 and the mill in 1966, although buildings survived into the 1990s. The site was subsequently cleared and landscaped.
