The strong coal mining heritage of north-east England is still evident in annual events such as the Durham Miners' Gala. The region, encompassing County Durham and Northumberland, was once dotted with hundreds of mines. Many mines were closed in the wake of the 1984-1985 UK miners' strike and the industry has effectively vanished, except for some open cast mining.
