Dunaskin Site News

Dunaskin Ironworks Museum, whose site we share, went into liquidation in August 2005. With the agreement of the liquidator, we were able to run brakevan rides in summer 2005, but were unable to do so during 2006 because of locomotive problems. Since October 2005 we have been in negotiations with The Coal Authority and Scottish Coal with a view to taking over the part of the site which we occupy.

At a recent meeting we were given a verbal assurance by a representative of Scottish Coal that we would be given a long lease of that part of the site which we currently occupy. So also will other site users, such as Dunaskin Doon Band.

Given that assurance, the Group has felt able to begin to “personalise” the site by the installation of new signs and by preparing certain buildings for a season of open days.
