Monkwearmouth Colliery 1991
Monkwearmouth Colliery was a major North Sea coal mine located on the north bank of the River Wear, in Sunderland. It was the largest mine in Sunderland and one of the most important in County Durham in the northeast of England. First opened in 1835, the mine was the last to remain operating in the County Durham Coalfield. The last shift left the pit on 10 December 1993, ending over 80 years of coal mining in the region. The Colliery site was cleared soon afterward, and the Stadium of Light, the stadium of Sunderland A.F.C., was built over it, opening in July 1997.
