The village of Winchburgh is situated between Edinburgh and Linlithgow in West Lothian.
Its growth was thanks to the opening of the Union Canal in the 19th century and the manufacture of shale oil. Production stopped in 1960, though the strange shale oil waste 'bings' remain a characteristic feature of the West Lothian landscape today.
