Explore The Common Room’s Graft and Glory Exhibition at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre.
About this event
Graft & Glory tells the story of our region’s engineers. They invented, innovated and campaigned to make mining safer, not only in the North East, but also around the world. It is the story of our region’s graft and glory: our responses to challenges facing industry, past, present and future.
Discover geology specimens and items from The Common Room’s archive and collection that link to the heritage of the National Park.
The Graft and Glory Exhibition is open daily at The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre between 10:00 – 17:00, Monday – Sunday from 9th September until 24th October 2021.
Access to the exhibition is free and suitable for all ages however children must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult.
The Northumberland National Park Authority is following current government guidelines. Given the high levels of Covid infection in our region, and the impact on staffing through the need for some to self-isolate, we are having to review our services and Covid provisions on an on-going basis. Please check The Sill’s website for further updated information ahead of your visit.
