Historically Midlothian was one of the cornerstones of the UK coal mining boasting at one time around 26 mines and 11,000 employed in the industry.With the continous demise of this deep cast industry throughout the UK, the final deepcoal mine closed in Midlothian in 1998. In 2013 however the go ahead was given for an open cast facility at Cauldhall Moor to mine around 10 million tonnes of coal.

Despite this tenous link to it's past, Midlothian has re-invented itself with regards employment and jobs, affected by the economic downturn of 2009/10, the region is now a diverse and vibrant.
