Dear list, If you currently live, or have previously lived, in an old colliery village/town in Scotland and/or you have memories that you are willing to share, such as watching the demolition and/or landscaping of the bings; if you played on the sites as a youngster, you still visit the sites today or you simply miss the headstock in the landscape would you be willing to contribute to the 'Landscape Legacies of Coal' project by filing in a e-questionnaire at https://stirling.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/landscape-legacies-of-coal. The questionnaire will take around 10 mins.
The aim of the study is to establish official and unofficial landscape biographies of these ex-colliery sites. How they have been re-purposed and redeveloped, how the industry has been remembered or commemorated, or not as the case may be, and how the sites have been understood, experienced and used by the local communities from closure to present day.
The survey is being undertaken by Catherine Mills (history) and Ian McIntosh (sociology) at the University of Stirling. For more information about the project (which also includes the creation of heritage walks that narrative the story of coal through the remaining landscape features) see http://stir.ac.uk/1nf or visit our Facebook page
