Hawthorn Dene Heritage Project

This arts and heritage project in East Durham is exploring the heritage of the beautiful Hawthorn Dene area, located near Easington Colliery, and is shining a light on the people who have lived, worked and played there over the years.

I am working with artists from The Barn at Easington, Nicola Balfour and Ellin Hare, and with the Easington Brownies and Guides, the local National Trust guides and the Easington Local Heritage Group to bring this local area to life.  I have been photographing and recording with the young people the remains of former buildings and the flora and fauna of the area and will be producing an exhibition of this work.
