A project by the Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust, the Shale Trail will be a 16 mile route linking Winchburgh and West Calder which will tell the story of the oil shale industry in West Lothian.
The existing Brox Burn Path forms part of the route. Over the coming weeks, works will be undertaken to upgrade sections of the paths as follows:
- week commencing 20th July: from Middleton Road to the Iron Bridge / Westhall Gardens steps
- week commencing 27th July: from Holmes Park to Middleton Road - plus a new circular path in the field off Middleton Road / bounding Burnside
