The Frances Colliery or the Dubbie was situated on the Dubbie Braes a popular Victorian tourist destination (AYE) the pit workings obliterated the braes but I suppose that's industry for you. At its peak the Dubbie employed over 1000 people but Thatcher and the Tories all but destroyed it. The final straw was a fire way down below and that ended mining in this area.
