A new documentary by Lonely Tower Media to commemorate 30 years since the last colliery closed.
Using newly filmed narratives from the people who still live in the pit towns and villages of ‘old’ County Durham, we tell the story, in a feature length documentary film, of what it really means to grown up in a community ruled by coal and of what happens to those communities when the digging stops.
This documentary film tells the story of the people who live with the legacy of the Durham Coalfield. Told in their own words we hear from those who grew up in the shadow of head gear and from those who now inhabit those same streets and live with this proud inheritance.
