Birkhill Development

The tranquil  countryside location of Birkhill Station is already a favourite with film-makers and has starred on TV & the silver screen including the re-run of the ’39 Steps’ and the latest Agatha Christie mystery ‘Murder is Easy’. However, Birkhill has the potential to be much more than just a film set. It has a huge development opportunity as a stopping off point for vistor’s travelling on the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway such as country walks and the industrial heritage of the Fire Clay Mine that once operated at Birkhill but sadly the processing plant buildings have been demolished and the tramway down to the mine albeit visible is now being reclaimed by nature and is overgrown.

The SRPS Development team in-conjunction with the various supporting groups have identified several major projects that are either in progress or planned for the medium to long term more information can be found by clicking on the links below:

To develop Birkhill requires scarce funds and resources, so if you are in a position to donate as much or as little as possible to help complete the development of the 2nd Platform, the ex West Calder Footbridge and the refurbishment of the existing platform and station building that would be truely wonderful.
