Tilly Tour - Part 3

"Grey Towers of Durham
Yet well I loved thy mixed and massive piles
Half church of God half castle 'gainst the Scots
And long to roam these venerable aisles
With records stored of deeds long forgot"

Sir Walter Scots words inscribed on the bridge overlooking the cathedral.


The Cathedral and the Castle - a wonderful place to have Halls of Residence for the University are the main sights of this delightful riverside city.

    Got the leaflet today telling us about the referendum for a regional assembly. And guess what pic was on it... Minus you me and Dave of course.
