Durham visit

Another day, another fine northern city. Durham is about ten minutes from Newcastle by train, so naturally I hardly ever go there :shock: . However, as part of my plan to do more with my time off, I decided that an afternoon there was in order. Not a bad way to spend my birthday :smile:

Durham is dominated by the cathedral and castle, built on high ground overlooking the River Wear. These are some pictures I took while wandering around.

In case you’re wondering, the white elephant belonged to the “No” campaign in the referendum on the proposed regional assembly for north-east England. It was probably the best thing in the whole campaign from either side…
