The towns and villages of Whickham, Sunniside, Marley Hill, Lobley Hill, Swalwell, and Dunston have long been linked, not just geographically and politically, but also by their long association with the coal-mining industry. 'Black gold' mined in Marley Hill and beyond was carried though Sunniside by the world famous Tanfield Way. Using a set of old photographs of these locations, Nick Neave has taken a series of new photographs in the same places to show the changes that have taken place within the past hundred or so years. Use this book as a guide to see how these places have changed or not, and find out some interesting historical facts about your local area.
