'Scene' in Durham 4/5

The River Wear (pronounced weer) in North East England rises in the Pennines and flows eastwards, mostly through County Durham to the North Sea in the City of Sunderland. Being 60 miles long, it winds its way along a steep valley through the cathedral city of Durham, seen here, and gives its name to Weardale in its upper reach and Wearside by its mouth.

a picturesque spot, Brian. it does not appear to be too deep, or does the reflection deceive me?
Brian Walbey: It isn't very deep at this point Ayush, no doubt it deepens as it nears the coast.
Un joli paysage calme et serein.
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.

A lovely river that I have had the pleasure of experiencing myself albeit a long time ago in Durham
Brian Walbey: Even through the centre of the city it is still an attractive river.
Lovely reflection of that tree Brian
Brian Walbey: That's the bonus in the shot Bill.

A fine English river, looking very placid here
Brian Walbey: Only just on the edge of the city, mind you the river is nice right through the centre as well.
It is a fine river Brian.
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it.

It is a delightful view of the stream, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, no doubt it widens up as it nears the coast.

Who needs the cathedral when you have such an enchanting river. Fine shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Mike, and it is only just out of the centre of the city.
This reminds me of my hometown, Brian. I love it.
Brian Walbey: Then I think your home town must have been very pretty Mary.

Lovely! I've only had a brief visit to Durham several years ago when I was getting card reader from Jesse's, having left my own at home when on stay near Barnard Castle.
Brian Walbey: Yes Jessops Alan smile now but a shadow of their former selves. We called in at Barnard Castle some years ago on a holiday, thought it quite an interesting place.

** Jessops **
As a boy I used to play on its banks and once, with friends, built a raft to float on it smile
Brian Walbey: Some more nice memories Tom, I wonder where those friends are now.
