The Durham Pit Stories of George Parkinson.

Postumous Honorary Membership for George Parkinson?

The Friends of Beamish would have been proud to have George as a member so I have created a special class of membership for the website. In this way we can give him a bit of space to tell his own story of his life.

Introducing George Parkinson and his Stories.

The Stories (So Far).

  1. Memories of 1837: The Nine Year Old Pit Lad.
  2. Invasion of the Methodists.
