Norman Cornish – Behind the Scenes page 31

A powerful drawing of a feature which, for many generations, dominated much of the landscape in County Durham and likewise other mining communities across the UK.

Within a five miles radius of Spennymoor there were 135 collieries and pits at varying periods between 1829 and 1983.

During the Depression, The Times newspaper described County Durham as ‘little more than one huge colliery.’
