A painting of Berriman's Chip Van

The Restoration of Berriman's Chip Van

Berriman's Chip Van was the subject of many paintings and drawings by Norman Cornish. The original chip van was recently restored by Staingate Restorations and Replicas, of Haltwhistle, Northumberland. If you would like to see the work they carried out click here.

We have already received some interesting Guest Book contributions about the Chip Van and we would welcome any information, memories and anecdotes for publication on the Guest Book page.

You can click on the Spennymoor map to see the location of the chip van before it retired.
