Prestongrange Colliery (1874-1962)


Description

This was a colliery close to the south bank of the Firth of Forth.

The colliery provided coal for many including, before it was re-sunk in 1874, the incline engines for the Dundee and Newtyle Railway at Law Incline, Balbeuchly Incline and Hatton Incline.

The site is now the Prestongrange Industrial Heritage Museum noted particularly for its beam engine.
