About the area:
Durham has the third oldest university in England (after Oxford and Cambridge) with nearly 18,000 students. The university’s students come from all over the world, which has made Durham a lively cosmopolitan city.
The central area of the City of Durham is one of the most important historic cities in Britain as a significant example of a medieval town within a defended complex; dominated by the cathedral, castle and bridges. It has a simple layout within the landscape, with roads and streets radiating out from the market place, and this medieval infrastructure forms the historic core of the Durham city conservation area. The wider setting of the conservation area is formed by Durham’s ‘outer bowl’ comprising of the surrounding hills and ridgelines which provide an important wider visual context to the whole City.
Major components of the conservation area, as listed in the conservation assessment, are “the River Wear, the river banks and The Sands, St Nicholas cemetery and the parkland setting of Wharton Park and Aykley Heads providing a high quality landscape setting to this area. These areas contribute significantly to the setting of Durham Cathedral and Castle World Heritage Site and the wider City.”
And, “The topography of the area from the low lying flood plain of the River Wear to the sloping woodland and fields rising to Aykley Heads to the dramatic steep slopes at Wharton Park, part of the lower reaches of Durham Bowl and its visual relationship to setting of the Medieval city”.
