Winchburgh
Winchburgh
Former oil mining town, still dominated by the piles of red shale produced by the industry. Aimed mainly at producing lamp oil in the 19th Century, oil bearing shales were mined and hydrocarbons distilled off. More conventional oil production soon undercut the industry, but shale was mined until 1962.
