Beddy visits… Durham

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Today, on our way to Newcastle on our deliveries, we stopped off in Durham to have a relaxing break from the busy roads. This small, beautiful city used to have a landscape dominated by mines and was one of the UK’s largest producers of coal.Now, to celebrate this mining history every year the city is home to the Durham International Festival of Brass which started amongst miners and trade unionists in the 20th century.

The city also has various landmarks which are renowned across the world such as the Durham Cathedral which was the set for various scenes in the Harry Potter films!
