Description: Colliery Check indicating EC (Easington Colliery), LM (Low Main Seam), 67.

When a miner went to work at a pit he was issued with a check. The number on the check or tally was personal to each miner and prior to going down the pit, the miner would exchange his tally for his numbered lamp from the lamp room. When the lamp was returned at the end of the shift, the tally would be returned to the miner.

Checks were utilised for other purposes within a mine. Coal was loaded into tubs by the 'putter'. Before the tubs were pulled away, he would mark each tub with a token so that it would be credited to the men who hewed it. The 'keeker' would check that there were no stones in the tub. If stone was found, the miners would not get paid for that tub of coal. See UKDFD 18562.

Easington Colliery, Durham, began when the pit was sunk in 1899. Thousands of workers came to the area from all parts of Britain and with the new community came new shops, pubs, clubs, and many rows of terraced 'colliery houses' for the mine workers and their families. In 1993 the mine was closed.
