Former Seghill Colliery pit yard
The mine closed in 1962. This is now a small industrial area. Some of the original pit buildings remain, supplemented by an assortment of more recent buildings.
The mine was mentioned in the old folk song 'Blackleg Miner':
'Dinna gang near the Seghill mine.
Across the way they stretch a line,
To catch the throat and break the spine
Of the dirty blackleg miner.'
