Unique Images from the Archives of Historic England

Availability: Out of stock

This illustrated history portrays the historic county of Durham. It provides a nostalgic look at Durham's past and highlights the special character of some of its most important historic sites. The photographs are taken from the unique Historic England Archive, the nation’s record of 12 million photographs, drawings and publications, ranging from the 1850s and the earliest days of photography up to the present day.

Once a region of mining and heavy industry, the county borders Tyne and Wear to the north east, Northumberland to the north, Cumbria to the west and North Yorkshire to the south and, historically, included Gateshead and Sunderland. Today, one of the main industries is tourism, thanks to the cathedral city of Durham, a remarkable place, a priceless historical gem and, deservedly, a World Heritage Site. Historic England: Durham shows the county as it once was, from Durham City’s narrow medieval streets to the industrial landscapes of South Tyneside and Wearside. This books helps you discover the remarkable history of this proud region.
