Mining - Ayrshire’s Lost Industry



Author : Guthrie Hutton

ISBN : 9781872074887
Cover : paperback
Price : £15.00

The first of our illustrated mining histories to be published, this well researched volume has been deservedly successful. Coal mining has been described as Scotland's ghost industry - many of its once thriving, coal driven communities have almost completely vanished. To make them live again between the pages of his book, Guthrie Hutton spanned the length and breadth of Ayrshire and Upper Nithsdale, tracking down former miners and unearthing photos of long-forgotten pits.

Among the many communities featured are Auchenharvie, Glenburn, Auchencruive, Drumley, Killoch, Polquhairn, Houldsworth, Pennyvenie, Minnivey, Mauchline, Highhouse, Barony, Kames, Afton, Knockshinnoch Castle, Fauldhead and Killochan. There are over 200 illustrations covering all aspects of mining life.
