Hiya, it's been a lovely day up here in Durham. I put on my walking boots and shorts, and with my sandwiches made I set off down the road, and turned left after the railway line to walk across the fields to town. There's a little iron bridge hidden behind the trees, and the path carried on up and over the brow of the hill and joined the road near to Nevilles Cross.
I liked the design of the round windows on this black and white building, but the shop front below spoils it. It's a shame they didn't make a sign in keeping with the rest of the building.
The Cathedral was open to visitors as you would expect, unlike the Castle which you needed to get a ticket and join the guided tours. I went in the Cathedral but not the Castle.
As far as I could see this was the Castle entrance. No entry unless you have a ticket for a tour. I sat on a bench and had a sandwich but couldn't see anyone waiting for a tour to start.
There are lots of cobbled streets, and lots of narrow allyways.
That's about the best shot you are going to get of the Castle.
I'm off to Newcastle tomorrow on the train, looking forward to that.
