station on the line above mentioned. Aboui a mile to the north is

Carbington.— This small parish lies in the southern part of the
county, on the descending braea which, at their summit, divide the
district from the wilds of Peebles-shire. The village Is pleasantly
situated on elevated land, nine and a hall miles south-east from
Edinburgh, and consists of but a few houses and the kirk. Though
not unfavourable to the growth of corn, the soil is more particularly
adapted to that of the potato and green crops ; coal is wrought in
abulidance, and there is also an indication of ironstone. Prior to
the Reformation this parish had tlie valuable peculiarity of being a
rectory independent of any monastery. The parish embraces an
area of 4,403 acres, and in 1371 had a population of 712.
