Burradon Colliery Banner Restoration Project

On November 16, 2015, Kath Smith and Chris wray collected the old Burradon Pit Banner from Burradon Primary School where it had been looked after by Miss Angela Hunter and her staff since the closure of Camperdown Club.

The Banner, which by now was in a very fragile condition was carefully packed and transported to Haughton Studio at Humshaugh Near Hexham, and left in the care of Jim Devenport and his team who would begin the restoration.

Jim and later Caroline Rendell, deserve great praise and recognition for the quality of the restoration and the completed banner has exceeded our expectations. Well done and thank you form a grateful community.
