DescriptionMy Grandfather, age 65, worked at Herrington Colliery. This is where my Grandad was brought up and my father was born.The place is special because previous generations of Kelly's worked here and he worked with his school friends at the age of 16 down the mine. When my grandad was my age he would see coal miners walking home, with dirty clothes and black faces. Most of the local men worked at the mine. It was a tight knit community. My Grandfather drove the trucks that would carry the coal that was from the mine to the railway carriages that were waiting to go all over the North East of England.
