Description

The Durham Mining Museum covers mining in the Northern part of England i.e. County Durham, Northumberland, Cumberland, Westmorland and the Ironstone mines of North Yorkshire. Although there is a display room at Thornley Community Centre, it seems most of the museum is the library and data which is presented on their website (see link below). The data is very detailed concerning miners which were killed during accidents, obviously the thing which was documented most accurately.
