Their Light Shall Always Shine Memorial Park is dedicated to the 26 miners who lost their lives in the Westray Mine explosion.

On May 9, 1992, 26 men were labouring in the deeps, when at 5:18 a.m., a blue flame lit up the dawn sky at Plymouth. A black cloud roared from the mine portal – a massive coal dust blast, triggered by a methane explosion.
