An appointment with the dental hygienist took me into Durham. I used the Park and Ride, but walked back to the car. On the way, I explored some of the vennels, paths, and covered ways in the city. One vennel and one path I had never been along before.
The river was swirling around the piers of Elvet Bridge.
These steps invited exploration; further up I had to clamber over drifts of pizza and lager rubbish.
At Palace Green, the cathedral was dramatic.
A bike had been left in just the right place to enliven this view.
This vennel may be covered and have doors, but the wind still whips through it.
Finally this recently discovered path offered an alternative route up the hill.
