Wanlockhead 10.6.2016 - beam engine abandoned mine workings industrial heritage
A little look around relics from the industrial past of Wanlockhead, Scotland's highest village at 1500 feet above sea level, on the borders of Dumfries and Galloway, and Lanarkshire, just a few minutes from the busy M74 and the West Coast railway line. Despite this the village has the appearance and scenery of somewhere far more isolated. There is a look at the famous Victorian beam engine, Straitsteps Mine, Pates Knowes Smelting Mill, New Glencrieff Mine and Glengonnar Mine.

Leadhills a look around
Leadhills is the second highest village in Scotland at 1,460 feet above sea-level. The area is believed to have been important for mining sinch the Romans and the town is the site of the first discovery of many minerals, including lanarkite and leadhillite. Gold mined in Leadhills was used to form Scotland's crown jewels, which are on public display at Edinburgh Castle. The Scots Mining Company House is an early 18th-century mansion house which was built for the manager of the Leadhill mines. Designed by William Adam, it is now a category A-listed building which has a coffee and gift shop.

Out & About Visits Wanlockhead, Scotland's Highest Village.
Situated in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, Wanlockhead is Scotland's highest village at an average height of around 410m. It owes its existence to the lead and other mineral deposits in the surrounding hills. Lead, zinc, copper and silver were mined nearby, as well as some of the world's purest gold at 22.8 carats. Some of this gold was used to make the Scottish Crown. Wanlockhead became known as "God's treasure house" from the richness of its mineral resources. Today the village of Wanlockhead still bears many of the scars of the intensive mining which commenced in the 17th century. The last working mine in Wanlockhead ceased production in the 1950's..

Our hidden heritage: The history of lead mining in the Peak District
A film by students from the Anthony Gell School (Wirksworth) with help from White Hall Centre (2008)
Lead Ore Milling 1934 US Bureau of Mines
Nestled deep within the eastern Ozarks is an area known as the Old Lead Belt; it is a major part of the great Southeast Missouri lead district, the premier lead mining district of the world. The mining industry in this area has played an important role in Missouri's economic and social fabric for more than 280 years. St. Joseph Lead Co. is one of the major corporate enterprises that came to Missouri to mine lead. Lead and zinc production involved crushing and grinding the mined rock to standard sizes and separating the ore. This left behind piles of leftover rock called tailings that covered 4,000 acres in southeastern Cherokee County. These wastes were also a source of contamination. Lead, zinc, and cadmium from the tailings leached into the shallow ground water, contaminating local wells, and runoff moved contaminants into nearby streams and rivers. Wind also blew fine metal-bearing dust (from tailings piles and roads made of tailings) into the air, spreading the contamination to nearby non-mined areas. Radon gas from the mining operations was detected in the air around Galena. During the 1980's, this area was considered one of the most environmentally blighted in the nation. Some of the cleanup efforts are funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund. The EPA began working in the area in the early 1980's and work is ongoing. The EPA divided the Cherokee County Site into six subsites that correspond to six general mining locations, including the areas around Galena, Baxter Springs, and Treece, Kansas. Because the area in and around Galena had some of the worst contamination, early cleanup efforts were centered there. Chief among these was the provision of safe water supply for rural residents whose wells had been contaminated. Two new wells were constructed in the deep aquifer, and a new rural water district was formed that currently provides over 500 households with a long-term source of clean drinking water. From 1997 to 1999, contaminated soil was removed from 602 residential properties in Galena and replaced with clean backfill and grass sod or seed; fifty additional properties were remediated in 2000 and 2001. Remediation of residential soils has been completed in Treece and is ongoing in Baxter Springs. Cleanup continues at other sites in southeastern Kansas. For more information, check the EPA Region 7's website: http://www.epa.gov/region07/index.html . It does not matter if a person breathes in, swallows, or absorbs lead particles, the health effects are the same; however, the body absorbs higher levels of lead when it is breathed in. Within our bodies, lead is absorbed and stored in our bones, blood, and tissues. It does not stay there permanently, rather it is stored there as a source of continual internal exposure. Lead poisoning can happen if a person is exposed to very high levels of lead over a short period of time. When this happens, a person may feel: Abdominal pain, Constipated, Excessively tired, Headache, Irritable, Loss of appetite, Memory loss, Pain or tingling in the hands and/or feet and Weak. Because these symptoms may occur slowly or may be caused by other things, lead poisoning can be easily overlooked as their cause. Being exposed to high levels of lead may cause anemia, weakness, and kidney and brain damage. Very high lead exposure can cause death. A person who is exposed to lead over time may feel: Abdominal pain, Constipated, Depressed, Distracted, Forgetful, Irritable, Nauseous/Sick. People with prolonged exposure to lead may also be at risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, and reduced fertility. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) have determined that lead is probably cancer-causing in humans. This clip is from the 1934 US Bureau of Mines film (made in cooperation with the St. Joseph Lead Company), THE STORY OF LEAD MINING AND MILLING. The entire film shows mining and milling operations in Southeast Missouri after diamond drills have located a lead vein. The film also shows the dairy, school, hospital, and offices of the St. Joseph Lead Company. The entire film is available at the US National Archives in Maryland.

Leadhills Gala - setup
This is just under two hours of "Friday afternoon Leadhills Gala effort," squeezed into five and a half minutes. There would have been a lot more but the camera battery died; I'm still on a learning curve with this video lark. No prizes for spotting mistakes, but suggestions are welcome. Somewhere around forty Leadhills and Wanlockhead folks were involved in setting up the field for festivities, not to mention those who were busy in the Village Hall and Square, preparing for the festivities there. The Leadhills Gala (like most such events) consumes many hundreds (perhaps thousands) of people hours over the course of each year and relies heavily on the generosity, in time and resources, of local people. From baking and catering to fund raising to marquee building to marshalling; gathering kit together and getting it where it's needed, then getting it back to its respective owners - it all amounts to time, mileage and lashings of generosity and commitment. This year, two key bookings fell through within days of the main event, putting extra pressure on organisers to provide alternatives and get hold of more kit to make things work. And certain local folks raced at the very last moment to put in place an extra attraction to replace one that had cancelled. It's that kind of effort that makes Leadhills Gala so special and important. Gala day is one of a number of events that affirm Leadhills' and Wanlockhead's status as living, working, family communities. People making life better.

Places to see in ( Dumfries - UK )
Places to see in ( Dumfries - UK ) Dumfries is a market town and former royal burgh within the Dumfries and Galloway council area of Scotland. Dumfries is near the mouth of the River Nith into the Solway Firth. Dumfries was a civil parish and became the county town of the former county of Dumfriesshire. Dumfries is nicknamed Queen of the South. People from Dumfries are known colloquially as Doonhamers. Like the rest of Dumfries and Galloway, of Scotland's three major geographical areas Dumfries lies in the Southern Uplands. The river Nith runs through Dumfries toward the Solway Firth in a southwards direction splitting the town into East and West. Dumfries has a long history as a county town, and as the market town of a surrounding rural hinterland. Dumfries is a relatively prosperous community but the town centre has been exposed to the centrifugal forces that have seen retail, business, educational, residential and other uses gravitate towards the town's urban fringe. Located on top of a small hill, Dumfries Museum is centred on the 18th century windmill which stands above the town. Included are fossil footprints left by prehistoric reptiles. Based in the control tower near Tinwald Downs, the aviation museum has an extensive indoor display of memorabilia which strives to preserve aviation heritage, much of which has come via various recovery activities. The Theatre Royal, Dumfries was built in 1792 and is the oldest working theatre in Scotland. There are a number of festivals which take place throughout the year, mostly based on traditional values. Guid Nychburris (Middle Scots, meaning Good Neighbours) is the main festival of the year, a ceremony which is largely based on the theme of a positive community spirit. Dumfries is linked to the Northbound A74(M) motorway at Beattock via the A701 road. The A75 road eastbound links Dumfries to the southbound A74(M), leading to the M6 motorway and Carlisle. The A75 road west links Dumfries with the ferry port of Stranraer. The A76 road connects to Kilmarnock in Ayrshire. Dumfries railway station lies on the Glasgow South Western Line. It was awarded Best Station Awards by British Rail in 1986 and 1987. The train service is now operated by private company Abellio ScotRail which provides services to Glasgow and Carlisle, and less frequent services direct to Newcastle. The nearest station to Dumfries on the West Coast Mainline is 14 miles (23 km) east along the A709 road at Lockerbie, and the nearest West Coast Mainline station linking directly to Dumfries by rail is Carlisle. As the largest settlement in Southern Scotland, Dumfries is recognised as a centre for visiting surrounding points of interest. The following are all within easy reach: John Paul Jones Cottage Museum – The traditional Scottish cottage in which John Paul Jones was born in 1747. Solway Coast Sweetheart Abbey in the village of New Abbey New Abbey Corn Mill Museum Criffel – a hill on the Solway Coast popular with hill walkers for its magnificent views of the Southern Scottish coastline and across the Solway Firth to the Lake District of Cumbria Threave Castle in Castle Douglas, home to the Douglas Clan of James Douglas who fought with Robert the Bruce Moniaive conservation village Moffat and the views nearby of The Devil's Beef Tub, The Grey Mare's Tail waterfall and the A708 from Moffat past the Grey Mare's Tail to St Mary's Loch. Mabie Forest - popular destinations for outdoor recreation such as mountain bike and walking. Ae village and forest Lochmaben with its lochs popular with boaters and also its history with Robert the Bruce Wanlockhead – Britain's highest village registered at 1,531 feet (467 m) above sea level and the Lead Mining Museum Caerlaverock Castle Drumlanrig Castle Kagyu Samyé Ling Monastery and Tibetan Centre was the first Tibetan Buddhist Centre to have been established in the West. Bridge house museum at the foot of the old bridge within Dumfries Burns' house & mausoleum in St Micheals graveyard the Robert Burns centre on the mill sands dumfries At Twynholm is the David Coulthard Museum. Gretna Green and the Old Blacksmith's Shop famous for runaway marriages. Tharpaland – International Buddhist Retreat Centre under the auspices of the New Kadampa Tradition.

ALIEN minerals from 60million years ago discovered in Scotland in a shock UK first
ALIEN minerals from 60million years ago discovered in Scotland in a shock UK first. Geologists uncovered a meteor strike that took place 60million years ago by looking at volcanic rocks on Scotland’s Isle of Sky. Analysts thought they were looking at rocks from a volcanic explosion and were unaware they had found rare minerals from outer space until they tested the rocks. The report said: “These mineral forms have never been reported on Earth.” Simon Drake, an associate lecturer in geology at Birkbeck University of London, added: "We thought it was an ignimbrite (a volcanic flow deposit).”

The Bus Replacement Rail Service (yes, that's the right way round)
This may be the most British video I've done in a while! But I saw the news story and immediately wanted to film it: the volunteer-run, narrow-gauge Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway, in the south of Scotland, has stepped in to replace buses while a road is being resurfaced -- avoiding a 45-mile diversion and meaning that local residents can still get to their neighbouring village. This isn't the first bus replacement train in British history, but it's pretty rare. You can find out more about the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway here: http://www.leadhillsrailway.co.uk -- thank you so much to all the volunteers there for the time they spent with me today!
