Well, the little door on the right used to house the office of the Market Superintendant, don't know what its original use was.
It was built in 1768 by the Dean and Chapter of Durham and served as our principle public building until the new Town Hall was opened in 1910, it survived the blitz in WWll and was fully restored in 1977. The central column at ground level is reputed to be all that remains of an earlier Market Cross.
