An email from Chris Benton, September 2006 :

. . . . I have now started a new collection of St Boswells photo's. Most will have been seen already but I've never seen (on the site up to yet ) the exterior of (old) Melrose Railway station with its unique chimney pots. The railway line itself was closed in the 60s, courtesy of Dr Beeching. However, the station building (now an Italian Restaurant) and the exterior (presumably listed buildings) including adverts for (Woodbine, Frys Chocolate Brooke Bond Tea etc) remain the same save for a lick of paint as they were in the 50s.

The following is a selection of the photos Chris attached :
