Easington People : Places : Heritage

Pupils at Easington Colliery Primary School discover and record Easington’s rich mining heritage on a journey inspired by the Amber archive and the stories of local people. Freddie Welsh, one of the ex-miners who came into the school for the project became a key collaborator on Amber’s current film project Song for Billy.

This project was supported by Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Heritage Lottery Fund and Struan Foundation.
