First up, I'd like to let you guys know that there will be documentary I took part in about the Shale Mine Industry in West Lothian and it will be airing on the 17th of May this month on BBC 2 Scotland at 21:00, so if any of you are able to watch it then I hope you check it out :) This is an old abandoned colliery. It has been quite trashed in most parts, but some bits and bobs still worth seeing. The control room is probably the high light of the place. Hope you guys enjoy! I've still got some videos from my LA trip to edit and upload so should get them up soon :)

An overview of the progressive facilities at the Comrie Colliery coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. Trivia: When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. Nonetheless, there has recently been movement towards the redevelopment of the site. This film has been made available by the British Council Film Collection for non-commercial research and educational purposes . .

This is clipped from the 1945 film -- The New Mine - an overview of the progressive facilities at a modern coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. 'From the original film description - A modern colliery in Scotland, situated in unspoilt country instead of an ugly mining town, has up-to-date machinery, the latest ventilation and safety devices, and new methods in mining practice. The surface buildings of this model colliery are built on symmetrical lines. - When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. At the time of construction, Comrie was the new showpiece pit of the Fife Coal Company. Important features included the use of forced-fan ventilation (unusual at the time), and of skip-winding for raising coal from the pit bottom. The skips were brought in from Germany, and one week before the outbreak of World War II, the German engineers responsible for their installation were called home with the job unfinished. Underground transport was fully mechanised, with locomotive haulage and belt conveyors. Comrie Mine was demolished during the latter part of 1989.

Plans to develop a deep coal mine, creating hundreds of new jobs, have sparked controversy. Cumbria County Council has granted planning approval to West Cumbria Mining (WCM) for a new pit near Whitehaven, to be known as Woodhouse Colliery. It will be the first deep mine to open in the UK for more than 30 years. • Subscribe to ITV News on YouTube: http://bit.ly/2lOHmNj • Get breaking news and more stories at http://www.itv.com/news Follow ITV News on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/itvnews/ Follow ITV News on Twitter: https://twitter.com/itvnews Follow ITV News on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/itvnews/

The coal mining industry was one of the biggest employers in the UK, and the cinemagazine 'Mining Review' was shown in half the cinemas in the country - and not just in mining areas. This edition is a window into working-class life in the 1950s. A young family moves into a new house in the Midlands, one of thousands built for miners; the 16-year-old Coal Queen is crowned at Tamworth Gala; coal cutting and lifting equipment is in use at Plean Colliery, Scotland. And stealing the show, eight husky miners from the West Riding Colliery, resplendent in tutus, perform Delibes' 'Coppélia' for charity at Normanton Central Town Club. (Ros Cranston)

A new company West Cumbria Mining are being financed by China to the tune of £millions. On January 24th 2018 in Kendal, Cumbria County Council will be making a decision on the first deep coal mine in the UK in 30 years Please write and object – the more objections from the public and from groups there are the better chance we have of stopping new mining activity in close proximity to Sellafield The more letters of objection to Cumbria County Council the better ! Email: [email protected]] For the Attention of: Mrs Rachel Brophy – Case Officer Cumbria County Council Dear Mrs Brophy PLANNING APPLICATION: 4/17/9007 West Cumbria Mining I am writing to strongly oppose the plan to open a new coking (metallurgical) coal mine off St Bees in West Cumbria. Keep Fossil Fuel in the Ground - Cumbria County Council is signed up to climate agreements, which this plan would make a nonsense of. Close to Sellafield - Coal extraction is known to be a cause of man made earthquakes, this site is very close to Sellafield, much closer than any previous coal mining and these coal deposits are dangerously methane rich. Destruction of Wildlife Habitat -The RSPB, Natural England and others have pointed out that this plan would have the potential to impact dangerously on the fragile St Bees habitats and the wider Irish Sea. Yours sincerely ……………………………. For more information please see : https://keepcumbriancoalinthehole.wordpress.com/

The closure of Longannet Power Station marks the end of burning coal for electricity generation in Scotland for the first time in 115 years. Tackling climate change means rapidly changing our energy system away from one that runs on oil and gas to one powered by clean, reliable renewables. The Scottish Government should be preparing for this transition in a way that is fair to the workers and communities currently reliant on these industries.

From the worlds largest gold mine found on the top of a mountain to the largest diamond mine in the world here are the most massive mines in the world! Subscribe to American EYE! 5.. Asbestos Mine, Canada Also known as the Jeffrey Mine, it’s located in Asbestos, Quebec and it was in operation until 2012. It’s a whopping 2 kilometers wide and 370 meters deep! Check out this thing on google maps and you can tell how completely massive this thing is! It’s the by far the largest asbestos mine in the world. For a long period of time, people would use this mineral to put into their walls and keep their homes from catching on fire! But recently there’s been a link with asbestos and a disease called mesothelioma, which is a lung condition. This is a toxic substance that people should avoid, so obviously this large mine went out of business. The lake at the bottom might look like an inviting blue, but you can bet your bottom dollar, it’s highly toxic! The small town that grew with the thriving asbestos industry feels like they’ve kind of lost their identity once the mine was forced to close, but people do still live there. 4. Mcarthur River Uranium Mine In case you were wondering which mine produces the most uranium in the world, that would be of course the Mcarthur River uranium mine in Saskatchewan Canada. This huge deposit was found in 1988 and finally a mining operation took place in 1997, when it began producing what’s known as Yellowcake. It’s not the kind of yellow cake you’d eat with your grandparents. This stuff has a horrific odor and basically what it is, is concentrated uranium powder which can then be used for powering nuclear reactors. We imagine this powdery substance is quite difficult to get ahold of. There aren’t a ton of photos of this place but, it does produce about 13 percent of the global uranium production across the globe. 3. Diavik Diamond Mine In case you thought it was Africa who had all the massive diamond mines, think again! The Diavik Diamond mine, found in the the northwest territories of Canada is one of the largest producers of diamonds in the Northern hemisphere and this place is pretty crazy! They annually produce 7 million carats of diamonds each year and you better believe it’s not easy to get here. The Diavik mine is found north of the arctic circle and it’s definitely cold! This photo here shows the subarctic landscapes that surround the diamond mine. You thought getting to work in the morning was tough for you? Imagine trying to get to work here! Just recently in 2015, this diamond produced what was known as the Diavik Foxfire 187.7 which is one of the largest rough gem quality diamonds ever produced. 2. Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposits at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. The construction of this in the frigid conditions of Siberia must have been grueling and downright cruel. Sources state that the machinery used at this mine had to be covered at night or it would freeze Are the diamonds worth freezing to death?! It’s unoperational today but Some claim that there’s still a bunch of diamonds in this mine and the whole thing could be worth about 12 Billion dollars. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. Bingham Copper Mine The bingham copper mine located near Salt Lake City Utah is home to the biggest pit in the world and it’s been in operation since 1903. It’s about 2.5 miles wide and if it were a stadium, it would be able to fit an estimated 9.5 million people. It keeps getting bigger and bigger too! Diligent workers can move about 250,000 tons of rock each day and it’s even become a tourist attraction in recent years before a massive landslide took place. Some claim that this was the biggest non volcanic landslide to take place in North American modern history. This photo we see here shows you the aftermath of this massive landslide and Bingham Copper mine and it makes you wonder how safe some of the conditions at these mines truly are. The landslides were so massive, that they actually triggered a few small earthquakes! Experts estimated that 165 tons of earth slide down from the top of the mine all the way to the bottom.

Tour Scotland travel video of the Pithead on visit to Lochore Meadows Country Park, Lochgelly, Fife. Lochore Meadows was created in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was reclaimed from the derelict collieries, pitheads and bings which covered the area for many decades. Now the only obvious reminder of the area’s coal mining heritage is the winding gear from Lochore Colliery, Mary Pit, which stands as a tribute to the past and the men who worked underground, many of them losing their lives in mining tragedies. The Mary Pit was, at one time, the deepest mine in Scotland and had a very long life span. It was opened in 1904 by the Fife Coal Company and remained in operation until 1966.

So many collapsed roofs in this one, and quite easy to get lost. I knew it was getting dark outside so didn't explore it all as I like to use the light shining in as a way I know how to get back out. I really need to get some glow sticks or string as a system to find my way back out so I can go further without worrying. I got lost in a mine a couple of years ago and took me a couple of hours trying to get back out. I was alone, which made it even worse. I kept walking around in circles and passing the same old football and coke bottle. I remember thinking what if it collapsed and blocked the way I came and I never heard it!

Women working in the pits - £1 a week pension - no injury pay. This really was the pits - sorting out jobbies from the coal. A fasinating insite into the life of women working in the pits. A low budget film, the criteria was that only women could film and produce this. Maggie Wright & Sarah McCloud produced the content and it was shown at The Lochgelly Centre with Lesley Riddoch praising the film. Due to technical difficulties, it ended up that Steve Wright re-edited the film using Ken Morse techniques. This is a 28 minute documentary based on Lillian King's book "SAIR, SAIR WARK, WOMEN AND MINING IN SCOTLAND" describing the work of the hard-working women on the pithead - a job normally associated with men. Fife Fringe & Fife Council put the funding into the film. Testimonies from some of the last women in Scotland to have worked in this industry examines their fears, joys, tears and camaraderie. "Women In Mining" was a micro budget production which premiered at a Women in Mining Conference in Lochgelly Centre, Fife. Leslie Riddoch - Radio Scotland, Christine May - Fife Council, Helen Liddle, MSP and many others praised the quality of the production and the value of the oral traditions. Lillian has written eight non fiction books and edited over twenty, including poetry, autobiography and Keepers and Seekers, a series of five children's books. She won the Writers News Robert Browning Centenary Poetry Competition and the Writers Association of Scotland Constable Trophy for an unpublished novel. You can purchased her books here http://www.windfallbooks.co.uk/alltitles.html Another film by Maggie Wright is "Here We Go - Women Living The Strike" of 1984. We have clips of it, but due to the archival footage we can only show certain parts on YouTube. Available at www.tv2day.net

A first land motion map has been created showing movement across Scotland.Created using hundreds of satellite radar images of the country, the map covers movement over a two-year period from 2015 to 2017.It shows that small but significant rates of land motion are occurring across almost the entire landscape of Scotland, especially in old mining areas, which could even result in minor earthquakes.HOW DID THEY DO IT? Scientists from the University of Nottingham created the map using Intermittent Small Baseline analysis, a satellite remote sensing technique. The map was produced from radar data (627 images) acquired over two years by the Sentinel-1 satellite mission, which is part of the European Union’s Copernicus programme. Sentinel-1 data was downloaded for free from the European Space Agency website which is collecting data every six days and can measure down to the nearest centimetre. This technique has been used for a long time in urban areas but was difficult to apply in rural areas as the land changes shape through the seasons. Now experts from Geomatic Ventures Limited have managed to filter through these variables and get clear readings of rural subsidence. Subsidence is shown on the map by red and yellow colours, with green representing stable ground across the majority of the country. The team said such maps could inform regulations around fracking and oil and gas production.'There are many things that cause the land to move - some are natural and some are man-made', Dr Andy Sowter, chief technology officer of Geomatic Ventures Limited, the company that processed the images, told MailOnline.'In places like the Scottish midlands they were coal mining for 150 years and that deep coal mining has caused the land to move in a number of ways', Dr Sowter said.As well as being caused by historical coal mining, this movement is also influenced by subsidence over peat-lands and landslides on steep slopes.Dr Sowter said there are many reasons why we should be worried about this land motion.'In many areas across the UK these mining areas are collapsing and uplifting which causes minor earthquakes and tremors', he said.'If these areas are already uplifting and subsiding and causing tremors and you're going to go into that area and start fracking you ought to know about that.'From a fracking company point of view, you want to be damn sure you're not blamed for it', he said.Scientists from the University of Nottingham created the map using Intermittent Small Baseline analysis, a satellite remote sensing technique.The map was produced from radar data (627 images) acquired over two years by the Sentinel-1 satellite mission, which is part of the European Union’s Copernicus programme.Sentinel-1 data was downloaded for free from the European Space Agency website which is collecting data every six days and can measure down to the nearest centimetre.This technique has been used for a long time in urban areas but was difficult to apply in rural areas as the land changes shape through the seasons.Now experts from Geomatic Ventures Limited have managed to filter through these variables and get clear readings of rural subsidence.Subsidence is shown on the map by red and yellow colours, with green representing stable ground across the majority of the country.The team said such maps could inform regulations around fracking and oil and gas production.Project leader Dr Stephen Grebby said: 'Tracking ground motion is also important for a wide range of o1

A lovely look around a old South Wales Colliery, one thats a little closer to my heart as my late grandfather worked here for almost 40 years. Sadly today was a very wet rainy morning (no change for wales), so i promise i will go back a little closer to summer so i can get some proper footage. The coal mine is one of the longest working ones in the UK and has been around since the early 1800s when coal was close to the surface. It survived the miners strike shut down and in the late 1980s was bought out by the workers who kept it running until 2008, where it closed for the last time. It's now a open cast mine in the surrounding areas, but she still stands proud... a former beauty of what once was. Apologies about the rain on the lens.

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Bellshill a town in North Lanarkshire, located 10 miles south east of Glasgow city centre and 37 miles West of Edinburgh. In the late 1700s the parish of Bothwell, which encompasses modern Bellshill, was a centre of hand loom weaving with 113 weavers recorded. Demand for coal to feed British industry meant that by the 1870s 20 deep pits coal mines were in operation in the area. Hughie Gallacher was born in 1903 in Bellshill in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. He was a Scottish football player in the 1920s and 1930s. In 624 senior games, Gallacher scored 463 times. He is one of the Scotland national football team's most prolific goalscorers with 23 goals from his 20 internationals, a remarkable strike rate of more than a goal a game. Gallacher was one of the Wembley Wizards who beat England 5–1 at Wembley Stadium in 1928. Alex James was born in Mossend in 1901 and brought up in Bellshill in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Alexander Wilson James was a Scottish footballer who is most noted for his success with Arsenal in London, England. James played as an inside forward, as a supporting player for the main strikers. He was famed for the excellent quality of his passing and supreme ball control.
