The former Lady Victoria Colliery has been transformed into a fine museum, preserving and explaining the history of coal mining here and more widely in Scotland. Coal mined here went to power stations or to the steam-powered textile mills in the Borders.

The concrete gantry connected the main buildings with the pit baths across the road, now demolished with houses built on the site. Before the baths were built the miners took a bath at home. If a working father had sons also in the mine, he took precedence for the clean bathwater!
