Pulled into the empty museum carpark. Good view of what many Mid and East Lothian bolt sites once looked like.

The former colliery is now the Scottish Mining Museum The headgear is still extant and clearly visible from the adjacent A7 - Ive been past the site many times over the last 20 years. However the log is for the view from out first trip on the newly reopened Borders Railway. Unknown if the bolt is still in place and the chances of anyone getting up to have a look is extremely remote. Pic is a screengrab from one of the promo vids for the new rail line.
