This is the site of the new railway station, at Sea View, known to most as the former colliery site in Horden. The photograph was taken in April 2014.
I named this photo The Road To Opportunity. Stood contemplating what lay before me, this photograph froze a moment in time, the moment I decided I wanted to keep our family business based in Horden to serve the community we had been a part of for over 6 years. A community our family had long roots in for decades before that when the village was at its peak.
This little road may be rough looking, but beyond it is a new beginning, new hope, new opportunity. The future is bright, the future is connected, the future is Horden.
Together as a community of residents, community groups and local businesses we can grab this opportunity and own it. Take back control of our future as a village.
Horden needs you! Your family friends and neighbours need you. You need you, to believe in the big opportunity at the end of this rough road.
Believe in a better, brighter future.
