Abandoned Scottish Colliery(Coal Mining) - Urban Exploration
 
04:02
First up, I'd like to let you guys know that there will be documentary I took part in about the Shale Mine Industry in West Lothian and it will be airing on the 17th of May this month on BBC 2 Scotland at 21:00, so if any of you are able to watch it then I hope you check it out :) This is an old abandoned colliery. It has been quite trashed in most parts, but some bits and bobs still worth seeing. The control room is probably the high light of the place. Hope you guys enjoy! I've still got some videos from my LA trip to edit and upload so should get them up soon :)

Coal Mine At Comrie Colliery - 1945 British Council Film Collection - CharlieDeanArchives
 
16:23
An overview of the progressive facilities at the Comrie Colliery coal mine in Scotland, with an emphasis on the steps taken to ensure worker welfare there. Trivia: When The New Mine was made in 1945, there were around 1000 coal mines operating in the UK. Today, there are less than a dozen. Described in The New Mine as a "pit-head of the new world", Comrie Colliery in Fife operated from 1936 to 1986. In spite of the film's optimistic claim that the mine would "stand the test of time", and comments on the safety of its operations, the Comrie Colliery site is now derelict. Despite The New Mine's praise for the cutting-edge techniques employed at the mine, the disused site was recently described by Fife Council as the "largest area of post-industrial dereliction in West Fife". The land around the mine, clearly discernible from above, is reported to be heavily polluted, contaminated with cyanide, and the 40 metre high pile of coal waste (seen forming in the film) has purportedly been burning since the 1970s. Nonetheless, there has recently been movement towards the redevelopment of the site. This film has been made available by the British Council Film Collection for non-commercial research and educational purposes . . The British Council Film Collection consists of 120 short documentaries made by the British Council during the 1940s designed to show the world how Britain lived, worked and played.

Brexit reveals gulf between Scotland and England
 
06:24
(5 Jul 2016) North of Hadrian's Wall dividing England from Scotland, the shock at the result of the UK's referendum was still being felt the second weekend after Britons voted to leave the European Union. In one of the defining splits of last week's vote, all 32 council areas in Scotland voted for Britain to stay in the bloc. In Edinburgh, 74-percent chose 'remain' - the highest in Scotland - and some believe the nation's 2014 independence referendum is partly responsible for their decision. Lindsay Wright, a 23-year-old veterinary student celebrating her graduation, attributes the result to more knowledge about EU membership as a result of the referendum in Scotland on UK membership. She believes two years of political debate over independence has given people the chance to fully weigh the consequences of life outside the EU. But whilst pro-European sentiment could be expected in a large university city, even towns shattered by the demise of coal mines, shipyards and steelworks made the calculus that quitting the EU wouldn't turn things around for them. Robert Butcher's father worked in the Ravenscraig steelworks that closed down in 1992. Yet unlike many blue-collar voters in England or Wales, he doesn't see how leaving the EU would benefit declining industrial towns that were once the backbone of the British Empire. The old steelworks were demolished in 1996, and the derelict and polluted land is still being cleared up to be reopened for residential or commercial projects. EU funds have contributed to that effort. Further north in Alloa, business owner Raymond McGarvey said Scots don't like change and don't like uncertainty. While Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, one of the 54 legislators representing the Scottish National Party in the British Parliament, said the SNP's enthusiastic campaigning to remain in the EU helps explains why Scotland voted "remain." And Anthony Ridget-Newman, an associate researcher at the University of Glasgow, believes the independence movement is key to understanding how Scots view their place in the UK and Europe. To be sure, not all Scots feel the same way. Unionists marching with British flags and Protestant banners in the annual Orange Order parade in Glasgow rejected the idea that Scotland was being dragged out of the EU by other parts of the country. Penny whistle player Findley Mclaughlin said the referendum had been a "UK vote", not a Scottish one, accusing the SNP of ulterior motives.

Paul Robeson sings to Scottish miners (1949)
 
03:27
Extract from Mining Review 2nd Year No. 11 (1949) The highlight of this 1949 issue is the visit of American actor and singer Paul Robeson to Woolmet Colliery near Edinburgh. Robeson was also a renowned (and often persecuted) left-wing political activist and he made several visits to British mining communities. On this occasion he sings "I Dreamed I Saw Joe Hill Last Night" for miners in the canteen, a song about an American trade unionist who was allegedly framed on a murder charge and executed in 1915. Robeson had long been something of a hero to the British mining community, ever since he starred in the film Proud Valley (d. Pen Tennyson, 1940) as an American sailor stranded in Cardiff who finds work in a Welsh colliery (the newsreel opens with a short clip from the film).

Old Photographs Dailly South Ayrshire Scotland
 
00:59
Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Dailly, Scottish Gaelic: Dail Mhaol Chiarain, a village in South Ayrshire. This Scottish village was laid out in the 1760s as a coal mining village. In 1849 a fire broke out in Dalquharran Colliery, one of the nearby mines, and continued to burn for 50 years. Hew Ainslie, Scottish Poet, was born on 5 April 1792 in the parish of Dailly. After a fair education, he became a clerk in Glasgow, a landscape gardener in his native district, and a clerk in the Register House, Edinburgh. In 1822, being then ten years married to his cousin, Ainslie emigrated to America, where he continued to live with varied fortune for the rest of his days, paying a short visit to Scotland in 1864. Upon travelling to the New World, he was attracted to Robert Owen's social system in New Harmony, Indiana, but after a short trial he connected himself with a firm of brewers; his name is associated with the establishment of various breweries, mills, and factories in the Western States. He died in Louisville, 11 March 1878. Reverend John Thomson, born on 1 September 1778 in the manse at Dailly, was a Scottish minister of the Church of Scotland and noted amateur landscape painter. He was the minister of Duddingston Kirk from 1805 to 1840. Thomson died at Duddingston in 1840, having spent 41 years in the ministry. Anne Hepburn was born in Dailly on 20 August 1925, she was a Church of Scotland missionary and a teacher, feminist and social justice advocate and wife and mother. Her mother died when she was a child of eighteen months, and she grew up with her blacksmith father, who was also a church elder. She went onto study at Glasgow University, before training as a teacher at Jordanhil. In 1950 Anne Burton was sent to Malawi, then called Nyasaland, as headmistress of a mission primary school for girls. Anne Hepburn eventually settled in Kirkcudbright, Dumfries & Galloway, where her husband Hamish became minister. She died on 29 July 2016.

Mining village 'celebrates' Margaret Thatcher's funeral
 
02:14
The funeral of Baroness Thatcher has been marked by residents of a village scarred by pit closures. Banners and bunting were hung in Goldthorpe, South Yorkshire, in protest at her policies, as mourners gathered for the funeral at St Paul's Cathedral. A horse-drawn, open coffin housing an effigy of the ex-prime minister was paraded through the village. Heather Hopwood, landlady of the Rusty Dudley, in Goldthorpe, near Barnsley, said the village had "died" since the pit closure in 1994. She said: "It was a brilliant community, it was really busy, but now everything has gone dead because no-one has got any money, there's no jobs." The effigy was put up outside the Union Jack social club with signs reading: "Thatcher the milk snatcher" and "Thatcher the scab". One property in the town displayed a huge sign saying: "The Lady's not for turning but tonight she'll be for burning." Outside the Rusty Dudley, homemade banners were erected saying: "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, Thatcher's Britain has gone bust" and "That's another fine mess you've got us into Maggie".

Old Photographs Of Springburn Glasgow Scotland
 
03:56
Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Springburn, Scottish Gaelic: Allt an Fhuairainn, an inner city district in the north of the Scottish city of Glasgow. Springburn developed from a small rural hamlet at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Its industrial expansion began with the establishment of a chemical works by Charles Tennant on the newly opened Monkland Canal at nearby St. Rollox in 1799. Later in the 19th century the construction of railway lines through the area led to the establishment of Railway works and the village became a parish in its own right. The Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway first opened in 1831 to supply the St. Rollox Chemical Works and the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway was opened in 1842. Later, the City Union Line was extended to Springburn in 1871 and the Hamiltonhill Branch Line opened in 1894. Initially located outwith the Glasgow boundary, the area was eventually absorbed by the City of Glasgow Corporation in 1872.

Old Photographs Rutherglen South Lanarkshire Scotland
 
03:01
Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Rutherglen, a town in South Lanarkshire. Rutherglen received the status of Royal Burgh in 1126 by Royal Charter from King David I of Scotland who ruled from 1124 to 1153. Rutherglen was a centre of heavy industry, having a long coal mining tradition which died out by 1950. J&J White's Chemical Works in Shawfield, which was in existence from 1820 to 1967, produced more than 70 per cent of the UK's chromate products including chromic acid, chromic oxide pigment, sodium and potassium chromate and dichromate. Rutherglen, and most of the other towns encircling the city, are dormitory suburbs of Glasgow. James White was a Scottish lawyer, businessman and chemicals manufacturer. He was born in 1812 at Shawfield House in Rutherglen which at that time was a rural country estate on the banks of the River Clyde. He was educated at Glasgow Grammar School and Glasgow University and thereafter became a lawyer and a partner in Couper and White solicitors, a position which he held for 17 years. In 1836 he married Fanny Campbell, sister of businessman Robert Orr Campbell, settling initially at Hayfield House within the Shawfield estate, and they produced seven children, six daughters and one son, John Campbell White. At the invitation of his father and older brother, another John White, who had joined the business in 1833, James White became a partner in the family firm in 1851, focusing on the commercial aspect whilst his brother and father, who died in 1860, were more concerned with the manufacturing. Apart from his business interests, White was also deputy chairman of the Glasgow and South Western Railway, although the railway lines which served the Shawfield works were operated by the Clydesdale Junction Railway and the Caledonian Railway), was a director of the Merchants' House of Glasgow, and at various times was chairman of the Glasgow Royal Exchange, the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce and the National Bible Society of Scotland. He was a member of the Free Church of Scotland and a Liberal in politics. Upon his death in 1884 aged 72 at Overtoun House, the Lord Provost of Glasgow remarked that White was " a gentleman who has long occupied a foremost place among the citizens of Glasgow "

A little look of the old abandoned iron works up in Scotland. This was a large location which we explored for a good few hours in the lovely sunshine. We were approached on site by a lovely gentleman walking his dog that was kind enough to explain some history on the location for us. I've thrown the four videos into one, my apologies guys as i didn't expect to film there as much as i did. Also apologies about the loud noises on the gopro, I'm in the process of helping a friend with a prototype case he is making... so although annoying, its giving him the help that he needs to fix any bugs, just like the one caught in the video.

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Bellshill a town in North Lanarkshire, located 10 miles south east of Glasgow city centre and 37 miles West of Edinburgh. In the late 1700s the parish of Bothwell, which encompasses modern Bellshill, was a centre of hand loom weaving with 113 weavers recorded. Demand for coal to feed British industry meant that by the 1870s 20 deep pits coal mines were in operation in the area. Hughie Gallacher was born in 1903 in Bellshill in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. He was a Scottish football player in the 1920s and 1930s. In 624 senior games, Gallacher scored 463 times.

Gallacher was one of the Wembley Wizards who beat England 5–1 at Wembley Stadium in 1928. Alex James was born in Mossend in 1901 and brought up in Bellshill in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Alexander Wilson James was a Scottish footballer who is most noted for his success with Arsenal in London, England. James played as an inside forward, as a supporting player for the main strikers. He was famed for the excellent quality of his passing and supreme ball control.

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Johnstone, Scottish Gaelic: Baile Iain, a town in the council area of Renfrewshire and larger historic county of the same name in the west central Lowlands. This Scottish town was a planned community created in the latter half of the 18th century by the local Laird, George Ludovic Houston who held an estate in the town, the remains of which are known as Johnstone Castle. Industrial development brought coal mining, thread-making and cotton weaving to Johnstone causing it to grow considerably in size, expanding out in the 1930s with a number of newly built residential areas which addressed the problem of population density in the historic area of the town. Today it supports a small commercial centre and serves as a commuter settlement for Paisley and Glasgow. Shanks Park in Johnstone is named after a leading industrialist of the nineteenth century who owned a company of heavy machine toolmakers, Thomas Shanks and Company. Thomas Shanks was Johnstone's first chief magistrate. Thomas's daughter, Mrs J Polson, gifted the park to the town in the name of her late father.

Glasgow Street Party Maggie Thatcher Death Celebration Scotland 2013
 
02:47
Thatcher Glasgow street party to celebrate the former Tory PM's death. Revellers chant and sing anti-Thatcher slogans and songs like Burn in Hell and at the end of the party "Maggie Maggie Maggie!" is chanted in a fast and comical manner by one anti-Thatcher reveller followed by the reply "Deid deid deid!" (Scots for "dead.) The Glaswegians also sing "This for the miners!" while jumping up and down vigorously. People have celebrated the death of Margaret Thatcher across the country as she was the most unpopular prime minister in UK history as she ruthlessly implemented her neo-liberal ideologies. She destroyed industry and greatly damaged the trade unions. She was most notorious for her handling of the miners strike of 1984 - 1985. 90% of pits were closed. She imported and stockpiled expensive coal from abroad to outlast the strike. Police violence was used against the strikers. It was like battle lines with rows of picketers and police lined up facing each other. But the footage of the police charging at the miners was played backwards to make it look as though the miners attacked the police first. This was admitted years later but it was too late by then for the truth to do any good. Thatcher was also notorious for introducing the much-hated Poll Tax which involved replacing the rates with a flat-rate charge per person regardless of their income. Many demonstrations and riots took place. Thatcher was hated in many places and she was particularly hated in Scotland as not only did she shut down a lot of industry here and throw workers onto the dole but she also experimented with the Scots by introducing the Poll Tax a year earlier in Scotland as she knew she had nothing to lose since the Tory vote was already very low in Scotland. As it was recently said: "there are more pandas than Tories in Scotland" (There are two pandas!) But it was in London where the real riots took place. There was also police brutality on normal demonstrators e.g. an old woman at the front was batoned simply because she was an easy target although she wasn't one of the rioters. The Tory government liked to talk about law and order but crime shot up during the Thatcher administration. IRA action also increased because she would not recognise republican prisoners as political prisoners who went on hunger strike and died. So her treatment of the political prisoners also led to more deaths among the civilian population. The Thatcher government was also hated by the people of Liverpool because of the way the Thatcher government covered up the police's handling of the crush deaths and injuries that occurred at Hillsborough. Bad stewarding and policing caused the crush in the first place then the police hindered people from getting out of the stadium or ambulances from getting onto the pitch and more people died as a result. The cover-up involved smearing the fans and alleging that it was hooliganism that caused the disaster when in fact it was overcrowding caused by the desire for more profit and cramming as many people in as possible with as few turnstiles open as possible, less than for the fans at the other end despite the Liverpool fans having larger numbers and only allowing the Liverpool fans to occupy one part of the stadium leaving areas vacant and crushing them all into one spot. Thatcher was unpopular even before she became Prime Minister when she stopped free milk for schoolchildren. She was also unpopular for her policies abroad. She opposed sanctions on apartheid South Africa and called Nelson Mandela a "grubby little terrorist". She made other racist remarks about other countries too. She created high unemployment, reduced taxes for the rich and put up VAT which affects poor people most. The list is too numerous to go on but Thatcherite neo-liberal policies have unfortunately not been rolled back by successive governments but developed even further. Many people speaking about Thatcher's death have said it is great that she is dead but now the task is to get rid of Thatcherism as well. Thatcher was compared to a witch although most Wiccans and pagans would probably take offence at that! The song from the Wizard of Oz "the witch is dead" reached number one in many of the music charts except for the BBC official music chart which is known to have suppressed the true figures before. But they stopped short of banning it altogether as they feared it might have the reverse effect and create more sales.
