Scottish Mining Villages website updates

The excellent Scottish Mining Villages website at www.mining-villages.co.uk continues to get better by the day.

This month's updates include an article on a disaster at Grange Colliery in 1810, in which 17 men and women were suffocated after an explosion; lists of collieries in Scotland in 1860 and 1866; and a series of articles entitled Notes on Miners Houses reprinted from the Glasgow Herald of 1875.
