Memorials - Tranent - East Lothian

APOGI - A Place of Great Importance

Notice

The mining of coal has been taking place in and around Tranent since at least 1200, when the Lord of the manor of Tranent, raised a Charter awarding the Monks of Newbattle the rights to work the coal. Over the centuries it has been worked so extensively, it is said that Tranent is built upon a ‘crust below’ which lies a vast cavern called ‘The Waste’.
The last pit closed in 1963, mining will always be a defining feature of the towns character.
