The Brothers - waitin' t'gan down, a sculpture by Brian Brown in memory of miners in Seaham, County Durham. It is dedicated to all those who worked so hard below ground and under the sea at Seaham, Dawdon and Vane Tempest Collieries. Formerly known as Seaham Harbour, the town served as a port for the export of coal until the last local pit closed in 1992. The harbour now functions at a much reduced level, importing coal from Eastern Europe and elsewhere. - Philip Wolmuth - 2013-08-10
