INNEB LEVEN now form a united
pol ice burgh, and a small town, village
and hamlet, in the parish of Wemyss, and
afford a good shipping station for coal
export and a shelter for fishing, Buck-
liaven having a harbour and Methil a new
dock with appliances for loading colliers ;
they are situated on the north shore of the
Firth of Forth, 2 miles south of Leven and
7 north-east of Kirkcaldy; the burgh is
governed by a provost, two bailies and
six councillors. An office for the Burgh
Police Commission was built in 1902 in
College street, Buckhaven. Methil is a
quoad-sacra parish. The dock of Methil,
opened 5th May, 1887, was built by Ran-
dolph Gordon Erskine Wemyss esq. of
Wemyss Castle, but is the property of the
North British Railway Co. and in 1902,
1,759,041 tons of coal were shipped and
69,607 tons of merchandise, consisting
chiefly of pitwood, sawn wood, esparto,
flax and hemp were imported. The number
of vessels which entered the docks during
the year 1902 were 1,291 steam ships and
235 sailing ships, with a total tonnage of
827,783 tons. The dock has an area of 1J
acres, with width at entrance of 50 feet,
and a depth of water at ordinary spring
tides of 23 feet, and at neaps of 19 feet; it
is fitted with three of Sir William Arm-
strong & Co.'s hydraulic hoists, each cap-
able of loading a vessel with 2.500 tons of
coal in 24 hours ; there are also hydraulic
cranes for working other import and export
goods. The dock is connected with the
main railway system of Fifeshire, and is in
direct communication with all the Fife col-
lieries, and is lighted by electricity. A new
dock has been constructed, at a cost of
£200,000, the area being 7 acres. The
manufacture of fishing nets is carried on
at Buckhaven. There are stations at
Methil and Buckhaven, on the branch line
of the North British railway from Thornton
Junction. The populations in 1891 were —
Buckhaven, 4,006; Methil, 1,662 and
Inner Leven 579, and in 1901, 4,522, 2,686
and 792 respectively; area of burgh, 225
acres; rateable value, £22,786.
