this mine was opened around 1936 and worked in the Carboniferous Upper Limestone Group - Little Limestone seam (avg of 17" high).
from 1968 the mine was owned and managed by J.G.E Williams as the Clarghyll Colliery Co. In the late 80's it employed 14 underground and 5 on surface. The mine was last worked by W Thompson and K Carrick, and was operational in 1999 when it was said there were still 25-30 years reserves, the mine is thought to have closed around 2000.
