Looks like Janwhin spotted the original 1913 Grange borehole driller in the archives!

My father was Jock Young and he used to tell me stories about the cold nights he spent drilling the borehole for the Shilbottle mine in which I worked for 6 and a half years when I left school in 1955.

That's amazing that Jock Young was your father. Welcome to the site and I hope we'll hear more tales of Shilbottle

Great to have you here w. Any recollections you can record here are much appreciated. Did your father stay in the locality after the Wood House borehole log was completed or come back later?
