A lyrical account of the Man Engine's visit to Willington

I had goose bumps as I have never in my life seen anything as beautiful as the Man Engine…it brought what I think was a broken community back together, I have never felt so proud in my life to have just been a spectator...” – Man Engine audience member

Dr Stephen Pritchard from Northumbria University, joined the crowd at Willington on 30th June to experience The Man Engine’s final resurrection fittingly happening in County Durham.  Read his thoughts on the day here –The Man Engine: a Community Comes Together

Stephen is working with Northern Heartlands as a researcher to develop our work with some of the former coal-mining communities in our area.
