Scattered across the landscape of West Lothian is evidence of the Shale Oil industry, a physical reminder of the industry that very much shaped the area. This fascinating heritage was captured in a film, first broadcast on BBC2 in May 2016, and the Heritage Lottery Fund are now offering the local community the chance to watch it again at a special screening.
Find out more about the industry, your community’s Shale connections, hear from local experts on the history of the oil, and discover how you can access funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to run your own project.
