And it is 27 years ago this month since we said goodbye to Wearmouth Colliery with the last shift clocking off.

Have a look at these photos from the archives of the Sunderland Echo, Shields Gazette and Hartlepool Mail.

And after you have done that, why not get in touch and share your memories of your time at the pits.
