The photo project was started in March 2020 at the start of the first national lockdown. George Ledger, a retired police officer and photographer, began to document the impact of the coronavirus on Consett and its communities. What started out as a personal project soon expanded into a growing collection of photographs of people, volunteer groups and businesses during the pandemic.

George was joined by other photographers, Debbie Todd, Chris Bruce and Steve Webb and as the collection grew, they decided to work towards hosting an online and local exhibitions.
