Kirkbank

A location in the SE Scottish Borders, Kirkbank lies 1½ miles (2.5 km) south of Roxburgh and 2 miles (3 km) northeast of Nisbet. This was once a station on the Jedburgh Railway, a branch line which opened in 1856, closed to passengers in 1948 but continued to carry freight until 1964. The station cottage remains and the old trackbed now provides the route for the Borders Abbeys Way. Kirkbank Strip is a plantation woodland to the southwest, while the Tinkler Burn passes to the northwest.
