Landscape Legacies of Coal App Launch

About Landscape Legacies of Coal App Launch

Landscape Legacies of Coal (in collaboration with Macrobert Arts Centre and the University of Stirling).

Venue: Creative Stirling, 44 King Street, Stirling FK8 1AY

The local landscape of colliery towns and villages were once dominated by the bing, the headstock, colliery buildings, the railway sidings and the associated housing, clubs and bowling greens. Rapid decline of the industry from the 1960s brought closure, demolition and subsequent repurposing and/or redevelopment of the colliery sites that erased much of the industrial archaeology of one of Scotland’s foremost industries. Although often hard to discern, visible traces of coal mining remain in the landscape today, ranging from sunken hollows, patches of colliery waste and piles of building rubble through to communication networks, reclaimed bings and repurposed buildings.

The app identifies, records and commemorates this often hidden but valuable legacy in a series of curated heritage walks that narrate the story of coal through the physical remains left.

The event will include guest speakers including Miles Oglethorpe Head of Industrial Heritage, Conversation Directorate at Historic Environment Scotland.

Refreshments are provided.
