As soon as I saw the chimney's my heart skipped a few beats!

This place originally started life as an Ironworks (1840) but never followed on to make steel and as the times changed it was not economical to produce the iron from here, the ironworks closed in 1921.

It then started up work as a brickworks & Coal Mining, in 1947 the National Coal Board took control of operations until 1988 when the brick making ceased.

Also according to some locals it was used as a timber wash/proof house and the wood was brought in by rail and washed/graded on site.

Coal is still mined less than a mile away from the site.

The site was used as an open museum up until 5 years ago when the cost of running couldn't be replaced by the visitors it attracted.

A few pictures of the site in use, http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/search_item/index.php?service=RCAHMS&id=42587
