Jedburgh Railway
Jedburgh Railway
The trackbed approaching a missing bridge and Roxburgh Junction, where the line met the Kelso Branch Railway. The Jedburgh Railway fell victim to the catestrophic flood of 1948 which took out the bridge over the Teviot at Nisbet. The line was then closed.
Despite the time elapsed, the railway trackbed can be followed on horseback or bike as far as Nisbit from here. From Roxburgh to Kirkbank, where there is a slight deviation around a removed bridge and a garden, the path is grassy with muddy bits. Beyond Kirkbank it is an unsealed road. The scenery throughout is delightful.

Some of the trackbed is accessible beyond the lost crossing of the Teviot too.
