Whitburn was once dominated by Polkemmet Colliery – a large coal mine – but this was closed as a result of damage by underground flooding during the 1984-85 miners'' strike and never re-opened.

In December 2007, the town gained prominence as the hometown of The X Factor 4 winner Leon Jackson. Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/LeonJacksonTV
