A Walk Through Durham, England

Durham is a historic city and the county town of County Durham in North East England. The city sits on the River Wear, to the south of Newcastle upon Tyne and to the north of Darlington. Durham is well known for its Norman cathedral and 11th century castle, both designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The castle has been the home of Durham University since 1832. HM Prison Durham is also located close to the city centre.

The historical city centre of Durham has changed little over the past 200 years. It is made up of the peninsula containing the cathedral, palace green, former administrative buildings for the palatine and Durham Castle. This was a strategic defensive decision by the city's founders and gives the cathedral a striking position. So much so that Symeon of Durham stated:

"To see Durham is to see the English Sion and by doing so one may save oneself a trip to Jerusalem"

The old commercial section of the city encompasses the peninsula on three sides, following the River Wear. The peninsula was historically surrounded by the castle wall extending from the castle keep and broken by two gatehouses to the north and west of the enclosure. After extensive remodelling and "much beautification" by the Victorians the walls were removed with the exception of the gatehouse which is still standing on the Bailey.

The medieval city was made up of the cathedral, castle and administrative buildings on the peninsula. The outlying areas were known as the townships and owned by the bishop, the most famous of these being Gilesgate (which still contains the mediaeval St Giles Church), Claypath and Elvet.

The outlying commercial section of the city, especially around the North Road area, saw much change in the 1960s during a redevelopment spearheaded by Durham City Council, however, much of the original mediaeval street plan remains intact in the area close to the cathedral and market place. Most of the mediaeval buildings in the commercial area of the city have disappeared apart from the House of Correction and the Chapel of Saint Andrew, both under Elvet Bridge. Georgian buildings can still be found on the Bailey and Old Elvet most of which make up the colleges of Durham University.

millena : great vid michael! i hope i get to visit durham one day

Plainsight : God I loved Durham, what the hell is going on !!!
Anindo Mahmud : I miss Durham so badly.
I lived there for one year when I was a Masters student at Durham University.
Paul Wilde : Durham used to excite me as a child. Now I realise that a place heavily depends on its people. Who are the people who built Durham? Not its students or inhabitants, largely! Because Durham doesn't get a lot of tourists, because it's so small at heart, and because it isn't a heavily industrial city (apart from the building going on now) it really lacks buzz unless you're fortunate enough to get in a clique. A place of God should not feel as cold. It's a coldly middle-class place of southern 18 year olds at odds with the warm-hearted (ish) county it's in. It doesn't even have many independent restaurants or hotels to inject warmth in to it. If you love living in Durham, great. I love an austerity of atmosphere but it has to be balanced by some comfort and I've never felt comfortable in Durham. There's a reason besides distance why York, Canterbury, get many more tourists. There are many castles and cathedrals in the UK. Many might lack the quasi-drama of being on a rock in the middle of a loop of river but stuff like that would make me feel like I was in a maximum security prison. You only have to look at its university's alumni to see that it attracts pseudo-serious people - newsreaders, journalists. People who probably go home every weekend to see mummy and daddy. Not philosophers or entertainers.
