"A village on the NorthWest border of Cockpen parish, Edinburghshire, near the Edinburgh and Peebles railway, ¾ mile South South East of Lasswade and 2 miles South West of Dalkeith. Only a collier village when the Queen drove through it (14 September 1842), it now represents the aspect of a cleanly, pleasant, well-built little town, a summer resort of families from Edinburgh."
