The Knockshinnoch Lagoons
The Knockshinnoch Lagoons
In the days of deep mining, there were a number of mines near here. After processing and washing the coal, the spoil was brought by railway wagon to this area where it was dumped, creating boggy, black lagoons. The ground has now been re-developed into pleasant woodland and paths. The name Knockshinnoch reverberates also as the scene of the 1950 mining disaster, when 13 men died but 116 were miraculously saved.
