What is identity? Where does it come from?

Built on coal, these pit towns and villages forged their own unique identity.

Interwoven in the fabric of this is community, and an unwavering resilience in the face of adversity.

The story of the people of the Durham Coalfield is one of unyielding determination and perseverance to build a better future.
