But there are compensations... [Dec. 15th, 2014|06:14 pm]
[Tags|, ]

D. is with us for a few days: there was a long-standing plan that he would attend a family party in Leeds, then come on to us, and take the opportunity to try to visit Richard. As it turned out, we went instead to Richard's funeral, but D. came north after his party anyway, and he and I spent this afternoon mooching around Durham. We dropped in on the new(ish) archaeology gallery on Palace Green, and by the time we came out it was dusk, and the sky beyond the Cathedral was blazing scarlet. Naturally I didn't have my camera with me.


So D. took this with his camera. You'll just have to imagine that it's much brighter and much redder.

And that's quite a compensation!

The Archaeology Museum used to be in the old Fulling Mill by the river (there's still a signpost pointing that way on Windy Gap). Was it still there when you lived here?

Anyway, they've closed that, and made a new display in the old library on Palace Green. Probably worth dropping in if you have time, but nothing to get excited about (this 'jug' is pretty, though).

It is a very castle-like cathedral, isn't it? There's a poem that calls it "half church of God, half castle 'gainst the Scots..."
