On September 4th 1999 a coach party visited Durham, a first for many of those taking part.
The weather was perfect which made the coach journey through Yorkshire and Northumberland an added bonus.

Durham Cathedral

A tour of the Cathedral was followed by a shared Evensong for which we joined the choir in their stalls. It was marvellous to stand in the sunshine by the tomb of Bede in the Galilee Chapel and to visit the tomb of St Cuthbert. There was still time enough to pause during the day, to see some of the city and to spend a pleasant hour down by the river Wear.
