Celebrate the mining heritage of County Durham with a fascinating exhibition in the Open Treasure Collections Gallery.  Twenty-five years since the closure of the last County Durham colliery, and 75 years since the founding of the ‘Bevin Boys’, we explore the Cathedral's links to coalmining in the region, the continuing role of the Durham Miners' Gala, and how mining remains an integral part of County Durham life.
