St Catharine's Episcopal Church, Cadzow Crescent, Bo'ness



At St Catharine's Episcopal Church, Cadzow Crescent, Bo'ness we have a stained glass window dedicated to the memory of the coal industry generally (though not one particular thing) and to other industry in Bo'ness, I have attached the above photo for you. (We also have a lovely window dedicated to the local industries in St Mary's,
Grangemouth - but I don't think coal features on it).

I hope you find this of interest. Kind regards,

Rev Willie Shaw, Rector, St Catharine's, Bo'ness and St Mary's, Grangemouth

I discovered the window was paid for by a Mrs Jean McCabe and is dedicated to her husband John A McCabe 1908 - 1961 and her son John O McCabe 1940 - 1996. This appears on the window but is washed out in the photograph. The window is in the west wall of the church.

The window was installed circa the millennium and depicts the industries of Bo'ness including whaling and coal mining. I am awaiting for a few more details from a lady I met at the church this morning.

Kinneil - Valleyfield Link Up

The path under the arch has 13 slabs each with a bit of a sentence which reads - The path is longer than 13 slabs [but the others are blank]. The sentence starts at the harbour side (north side and runs under the arch to the south side.) and runs to the railway side / town side.

On 30 April 1964 toiling miners from Kinneil Colliery streaked with sweat and the colour of coal dug long and deep with hungry machines 500 metres below the river AND SHOOK HANDS with the miners who dug south from the colliery at High Valleyfield.
