Pitmen Painters

They were the inspired, and in turn inspirational, painters from Ashington of bygone years. Like any other group, or social stratum, miners had their fair share of sensitive, spiritual and talented people. You can google them – pitmen painters Ashington – UK of the web is best rather than the whole world –  and find a lot of interesting information. 

Again it is not about Ushaw Moor people – but it is about a group of the very same type – hardworking underpaid miners that enabled and fed our advanced economy, especially during wartime.
