Memories of Durham
In these lecture rooms, built of stone, I attended most lectures. I don't expect the rooms are used for this purpose now, because the number of students has vastly increased since my days. On the left is the Castle keep, and in the foreground is the well-kept lawn of Palace Green.
In the great hall of the town hall we had the Saturday evening dances or "hops", and also took exams, so this view brings back many memories!
This is the famous and wellbeloved view of the Cathedral with the three towers - one can climb the central tower - the Galilee Chapel and houses occupied by Cathedral officials as seen from Prebends Bridge and the bank of the River Wear, which I saw and enjoyed every day while I was at University. Beneath the Cathedral is the old mill which was later made into the archaeology department.
Can anyone remember the church (methodist) you could go in from North Road or from Crossgate, across from St Margaret's Church! I remember the family living in the church house - the Parks (June/Madaline)?
