The miners of the North-East, working in the most dangerous of conditions, supplied the coal which fuelled the engines of the Industrial Revolution and provided heating and lighting to millions of homes. Throughout much of County Durham and Northumberland pit communities sprang up because of the need for coal. Mining was fundamental to the development of the region. Illustrated with numerous colour photographs, Echoes of the North-East Miners throws the spotlight on the physical heritage left by the pitmen and their communities, including the numerous memorials and banners which speak so eloquently of their struggles in the face of adversity, their compassion and their enduring spirit of friendship.
