About us

Your present association was formed when the village pit closed in 1962 and it has been running since by a dedicated group of village volunteers.  Like most voluntary organisations we have struggled in the last few years due to lack of numbers on the committee and of course we need more new members who can help keep this vibrant community of Seghill prosper.

Seghill Village can be trace its history back to the 1100's, but it is likely that there was a village here from early times.  The coming of the coal mining in 1824 established the village and it remained a mining village until 1962 when the mine closed.  Today it still retains its mining identity, through the miners institute (now the village community centre).  The Community Centre was originally built in 1906 by the mine owners for the miners and their families.
