The second of our university open days was to Durham University. I think it was the hottest, most humid day of the week - not ideal conditions for a car journey, 3 hours each way.
The city of Durham is lovely - so picturesque. I took the camera but forgot to use it! So here are some pictures taken by better photographers than me.
The city centre is made up of narrow streets and old buildings.
We visited Van Mildert college - a typical modern-style residential college - it didn't have a great deal of character - but the duck pond helped.
Here's the history department building in the centre of Durham.
At least the knitting is making progress - although on the Durham trip the heat made it impossible to get a lot done.
As a treat I made sticky gingerbread muffins when we got home.
