Cornerstone Youth Project, Chester-le-Street Heritage Group, Aspire CIC women's training centre and Durham County Cricket Club have chosen archive images of sporting teams from Chester-le-Street and historic photographs of the town and explored the stories behind the images. The pictures and stories about them are on display at Chester-le-Street library, Mile House, the YMCA shop and offices, the Queen's Head pub and the railway station until the end of August.
