Going back to the past.
One of the region's longest established providers of social housing, Durham Aged Mineworkers' Homes Association, has gone back to its roots with its development at Brandon Gardens in Wrekenton, Gateshead.
The scheme, a partnership project with Gateshead Council, opened this month. It is near to the site of its first-ever new-build housing scheme, the Wallace Village Homes, built in 1906 and now demolished.
The homes are for older people and the association director John Humble said: "We are delighted to be coming back to our roots and building so close to our first purpose-built scheme."
