Name and dates

Standhill Siding (1849-1969)

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


Description

Standhill Siding was a pair of sidings just south of Standhill Farm. The sidings were approached by reversal from the southbound line and were on the east side of the line.

The site has since been landscaped but the road bridge to the north of the site still stands.

A saw mill, also now entirely gone, stood to the immediate east of the sidings. The sidings predated the sawmill.

To the north was Belses station and to the south Hassendean station.
