Monktonhall was one of the Scottish super pits sunk in the 1950'

Monktonhall was one of the Scottish super pits sunk in the 1950's intended to supply the new generation of Power stations. They were the most modern and well equipped mines in the country.They were sunk to deeper levels and mostly had to deal with challenging mining conditions at deeper levels than the previous generation of mines. Monktonhall was sunk to a depth of 930 meters making it one of the deepest mines. Throughout its life it suffered from water ingress. It was scheduled for closure along with the rest of the deep mines in Scotland following Thatcher's miners strike and subsequent privatisations.
