    I have been researching the coal mines at Bo'ness for a while and I don't know if all the entrances are gone but here is the info i have gathered already and I was wondering if anyone had any more info? I live in the town so can check out any leads but I need help working out where the many shafts were. Here is what i have so far can anyone help?

    At the risk of sounding like your mum - you do know that poking around in coal mines is very different from poking around in tin mines, quarries etc?

    If you know the risks and have the correct gas monitors etc - then go for it.

    I wasn't planning on going down for a while until i got the proper equipment and a bit more experience. I was just trying to figure out if its completely sealed up as I live in Bo'ness and it interests me
