Description"Viewed in this direction, towards the roundabout leading to a new housing estate, where the main gates of Vane Tempest Colliery once stood, Michael Johnson's sculpture shows the profile of the old colliery buildings which would have dominated the landscape. There was a tall central chimney flanked by the pit head gear above each of the two shafts, called Vane & Tempest, and the accompanying buildings which housed the winding gear and engines http://www.east-durham.co.uk/seaham/vanetempest/pages/image/imagepage4.html" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
