More autumn colours in Durham, back in GMT again

The first day after the clocks returned to GMT was glorious early on, with bright cold conditions. Another walk by the riverbank shows the autumnal colours.

Spring from Pelaw Wood, April 2017

A beautiful day in mid-Spring, 2017. The view is from Pelaw Woods across the River Wear to the cricket and rugby club grounds.

The pathway at the bottom of the photograph is still being repaired after a landslip during wet weather in 2013 caused the hillside to collapse. The repair work has taken several years to complete. More details of the work is detailed below.
