Miner's Welfare Hall, Mount Stewart Street, Dawdon (Dawdon)

The Dawdon Miner's Welfare Hall was built in 1910, first appearing on the third edition Ordnance Survey map (1). Streetview data (2) shows that the building exists today as a red-brick building with a central protruding section on the front elevation bearing a stone arch entrance on the lower floor and a pointed decorative roof. A name plaque above the door is fixed underneath the second storey window, whilst the name 'Dawdon' and a date plaque of 1910 are attached to white bands that cross the front of the building. The hall, also known as Dawdon Miner's Lodge, is known to have once contained at least two war memorials dedicated to the fallen of Dawdon and Seaham during the World Wars, location of memorials now unknown (3-4).
