AN exhibition depicting the mining and industrial heritage of north-west Durham will be staged next weekend.

The new Dipton Local History Group will hold the event in Dipton Community Centre, near Consett, on Saturday.

Most of the items on display will be part of a large collection built up by local historian Hylton Marrs, the author of several books on Dipton. Admission is 30p.

The group meets at Dipton Community Centre from 2pm to 4pm on Wednesday afternoons. The next meeting will be on December 6.
