The start of a seven day series showing you some scenes of the historic and beautiful city of Durham. For many years Durham was the administrative centre of the Palatine County and it's famous cathedral houses the remains of the northern saints Bede, Cuthbert, and Oswald. The cathedral is a UNESCO world heritage site and is perhaps the finest Norman building in Europe.
This is a view of the River Wear as it snakes around the mound where the cathedral and castle were built, an ideal spot for enjoying summer picnics.
