BUS shelters in a former pit village were transformed overnight as part of a pop-up art show.

Art installations appeared in shelters in Sunderland Road, Horden, on Tuesday, as part of the If These Walls Could Talk project, which was aimed at capturing the magic of everyday life.

Malcolm Fallow, chief executive of East Durham Trust, which manages East Durham Creates, said: "This was an amazing experience for our community, as well as giving local people a unique opportunity to experience high quality art this is a great way of putting Horden on the map for all the right reasons.”

Artists Sally Southern and Nicola Lynch have been working with the community since last September and the finished work included a mixture of text, audio and imagery inspired by the stories collected from across the former mining community.

They turned the bus shelters into a variety of rooms, including a a kitchen and a social club, featuring furniture and crafts created by those involved.

The process was documented by filmmaker Maxy Neil Bianco whose film was showcased at Horden Labour Club.
