Danderhall Locksmiths Near Me

The village of Danderhall comprises a substantial number of council houses, many of which have been acquired by private owners along the years. Historically, Danderhall served as a mining community, providing workforce for the adjacent coal mines of Edmonstone (to the northwest), Sheriffhall (to the southeast), Woolmet (to the east), and Monktonhall further beyond. Among these mines, Monktonhall was the final one to operate, ceasing operations permanently in 1998. 

Danderhall encompasses over 1,200 houses alongside a few retail establishments.
