Description: New Torphichen, 500 m. south-west of Cathlawhill Farm. Looking south-west. Disturbed ground caused by subsidence of shallow coal workings. The Carboniferous Bathgate Main Coal was worked in a number of very shallow workings, bell pits etc. on the western slopes of the Hilderton Hills, north of Bathgate. Subsidence caused by these workings is common and leads to disturbed ground on the surface.
