Whitburn

Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Scotland  /  West Lothian  /  Whitburn
Whitburn is a small town in West Lothian, Scotland, halfway between Scotlands's two largest cities, about east of Glasgow and 22mi west of Edinburgh. The nearest major towns are Bathgate, 4mi and Livingston,.The town was once dominated by Polkemmet Colliery – a large coal mine – but this was closed as a result of damage by underground flooding during the 1984-85 miners' strike and never re-opened. The colliery buildings have gone, and the coal bings that once were prominent have now been removed. Work to dismantle Bing No 3, the infamous burning bing, started in August 2006 and was completed by February 2008. The last major outbreak of burning occurred in 1998.The town's population was boosted by the 1960s Glasgow overflow. The town's Murraysgate and surrounding areas north-west of the cross were established to deal with the overflow.SchoolsThe town has 4 primary schools which have nurseries within. These four schools are known as Croftmalloch Primary School, Polkemmet Primary School, St Joseph's Primary School and Whitdale Primary School.The local secondary school is Whitburn Academy and a lower school called Polkemmet Primary School. It is a state run non-denominational secondary school serving pupils aged 11 to 18. Its catchment area is the town of Whitburn and the surrounding villages of Fauldhouse, Longridge, East Whitburn, Stoneyburn, and Greenrigg. There are approximately 700 pupils at the school.
