Description: Broxburn, West Lothian, viewed from Stankards Bing. General view of Broxburn area showing mixed land-use, industrial, housing, agricultural, transport, backed by spent oil-shale in Broxburn Bings. Oil-shale was first discovered as a raw material for the production of shale-oil in West Lothian in the 1850s. It was mined in the area from then until the 1960s. Since then a diverse range of alternative land use has arisen, with the bing, spent oil-shale waste product, forming a constant reminder of the dominant former industry of the area.
