  • Waterstones Durham City in 50 Buildings

    Price: £15.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The historic city of Durham attracts many visitors each year. They are drawn to its iconic buildings, particularly the great Norman cathedral and castle as well as the surrounding and relatively unspoilt medieval town. In this tour of the famed city, fifty of these wonderful structures will be showcased. It features the most renowned buildings of course but then goes beyond the ancient town core to describe Durham's flourishing university campus as well as bridges, chapels, theatres and pubs and more recent (and more controversial) architectural adventures. All of them - ancient and modern - help to tell Durham's extraordinary story. Added together they make up what has aptly been called 'The Durham difference'. Durham City in 50 Buildings explores the history of this fascinating city through a selection of its most interesting buildings and structures, including lesser-known buildings tucked away, showing the changes that have taken place over the years. The book will appeal to all those who live in Durham or visit the city, or who have an interest in the area.

  • Waterstones The The Coalminers of Durham

    Price: £20.00

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: For as long as anyone can remember, coal has been the lifeblood of the communities of County Durham. In its heyday, in 1913, the region boasted 304 pits employing 165,246 people. Coalmining in Durham was recorded as early as the twelfth century and medieval collieries flourished along the Wear Valley. A dramatic increase in coal production following the Industrial Revolution saw the county become one of the country's major sources of fuel, as it remained well into the twentieth century. The anonymous individuals, and their families, behind the story of coalmining in the area are the subject of this book, which is both an authoritative history and a fascinating portrayal of Durham life. A wide range of material is covered, from clear, illustrated explanations of the technicalities and terminology of coal extraction and coke-making, to the story of the Durham Miners' Association and its struggle for improvements in living and working conditions. The hardships and dangers of the miner's life are recalled in the pictures of the great pit disasters and the words of the survivors and rescuers, but the comradeship and community are never lost sight of and come into their own in the accounts of pit village life and of the famous Durham Miners' Gala.

  • Waterstones Secret City of Durham

    Price: £15.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: Durham City is a remarkable place, a priceless historical gem and, deservedly, a World Heritage Site. Over 1,000 years Durham's great beauty and history has inspired many architectural descriptions and guides. This book follows in their footsteps but then takes a different path. Wandering through the cathedral's darkened cloisters, the city's narrow medieval streets and the river's winding pathways, Secret City of Durham is one man's view of this famed peninsula - an occasionally quirky tour through history that looks beyond the iconic architecture and behind the fascinating jumble of city buildings. The author peels back their fa├žades to reveal the bewildering changes and on the way points out the lesser-known facts and characters associated with them. What points the way to Durham Cathedral and St Cuthbert's tomb and where can it be found? Who lived in Windy Gap? Why St Mary-the-' Less'? Secret City of Durham answers these fascinating questions and many more in a modern pilgrimage through the city.

  • Waterstones The A-Z of Curious County Durham

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: This book draws upon the varied history and unique heritage of the County Palatine of Durham, an ancient land of saints and warlords. It is a catalogue of curious tales, odd anecdotes and quirky characters from County Durham's past. Within its pages the reader will discover stories of hauntings, murders and mysterious deaths, while modern-day enigmas - such as the ancient structure that archaeologists remain at a loss to explain, or the lost treasure found at the bottom of the River Wear - are revisited. Inspired in part by the chronicles and compendiums of County Durham's nineteenth-century historians and antiquarians, this book is a miscellany - at times tragic, at times comic, but always entertaining. And for those for whom the collective subjects hold a perennial fascination, it is ideal for dipping into, perhaps to learn something new about wonderfully curious County Durham.
