About this product
- DescriptionDurham City is a remarkable place, a priceless historical gem and, deservedly, a World Heritage Site. For over 1,000 years Durham's great beauty and history has inspired many architectural descriptions and guides. This book follows in their footsteps but then takes a different path. Wandering through the cathedral's darkened cloisters, the city's narrow medieval streets and the river's winding pathways, Secret Durham is one man's view of this famed peninsular - an occasionally quirky tour through history that looks beyond the iconic architecture and behind the fascinating jumble of city buildings. The author peels back their facades to reveal their bewildering changes and on the way points out the lesser-kwn facts and characters associated with them. What points the way to Durham Cathedral and St Cuthbert's tomb? And where can it be found? Who lived in Windy Gap? Why St Mary 'the less'? Secret Durham answers these fascinating questions and many more in a modern pilgrimage through the city, which will delight and entertain residents and visitors alike.
