Title: Durham riverbanks

Phil has been a Geology PhD student in Durham for the past four years.

One of his favourite places is down by the river. It's very peaceful and picturesque and there's lots to see.

Phil's only regret is that he's now leaving Durham and that he didn't discover the riverbanks sooner.

i used to live in durham. not sure if i can remember the riverbanks or not. i do remember flass vale though. a little forest thingy, hope its still there.

I couldn't agree more with Phil - the Durham riverbanks are superb. So close to the busy city life yet so peaceful. I always enjoy a visit down to the riverbanks when I'm back home in the North East.

I was just visiting a friend in the Newcastle area a few weeks ago. We spent an afternoon in Durham visiting the cathedral. We walked across one of the bridges and enjoyed the beautiful view of the river with the cathedral in the background. It was splendid. It is one of my fondest memories of my holiday.
