The combination of very indifferent weather and the busy exams season has meant a pretty thin crop of photos of late. Hence this rather random collection.

YorkMinster


View down the nave of York Minster [53 57 45 N, 1 4 55 W]. Although Durham cathedral is unparalleled in its magnificent location and its solid architecture, it must be admitted that York is the winner in the beauty and grace stakes.

YorkHospitium

The Hospitium [53 57 40 N, 1 5 22 W] in the grounds of the former St. Mary’s abbey dates from the 14th C and is thought to have been a resting place for travellers visiting the abbey.

DurhamElvetBridge

View along Elvet Bridge, Durham [54 46 34 N, 1 34 26 W].

DurhamBathsBridge

The River Wear from Baths Bridge – a footbridge crossing the river at the (soon to be former) city swimming baths. The old racecourse in the righthand background is a common venue for large outdoor events, here a post-exam student music festival.

DurhamRowers

Naturally Durham couldn’t aspire to being the Oxbridge of the North without rowers…

Illuminate08

Capturing the firework display from this year’s Illuminate festival was just as hit and miss as last year.

Random: York and Durham
