Description"The site of Easington Colliery has undergone a major transformation into a public park following its closure and has been landscaped using 700,000 tonnes of colliery waste removed from the beaches under the auspices of the Turning the Tide Project. This seems an ironic reversal after the years of dumping colliery waste on the beaches during the life of the mines. The park was completed at a cost of almost £3 million funded by One NorthEast, the Millennium Commission, British Coal and the European Union." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2009.
