SLIDESHOW: Remembering East Durham’s role in the Miners’ Strike

Waiting for Video...

THIS month marks 30 years since the start of the Miners’ Strike.

Workers in Yorkshire walked out on March 6, 1984 with their colleagues in the East Durham coalfield joining them three days later before the national strike was called on March 12.

To mark the anniversary, here is a selection of local pictures from the year-long dispute.

Remember too that Memory Lane columns appear six days a week in the Hartlepool Mail and every Wednesday in your Peterlee Star.

If you have your own pictures from the dispute then please send them to us at
