St. Pauls on the Hill : Toronto
Former Church (now a private residence) (dated 1903). Toronto was named by WC Stobart (after the Canadian City) whose mining company built the village (1859) for the miners and their families. By 1894, Toronto Colliery was working four seams, with 500 men and boys employed. The colliery closed in the late 1920's, and reopened by the Bitchburn Fireclay Co.Ltd in 1937. At its peak in 1950, it employed 119 men. In 1967, it employed 70 men and 18 pit ponies, but closed soon after.
