This is the Seafield Colliery, Kirkcaldy under construction. Work started in 1954 and it opened in 1960. It was I think the deepest coal mine in Europe with the coal being taken from below the Firth of Forth which is just above the site on the photograph. The mine close in 1988, was cleared, and is now developed for housing. The main east coast rail line, to which it was linked, is below the site.

This appears to be a view of Seafield Colliery whilst under construction, and is thus closer to Kirkcaldy than Kinghorn.
