Greta shot! I guess it's all closed down now though.

Thanx Palmina, according to the Durham Mining website the colliery closed June 1980, there's a load of houses on the site now. (info on the closure added to the title). Any other old hauts of Kevin that you'd like a pic of, if I'am passing?

Was this the original Eccles or Maude Colliery?
