Presented by Peter Lindfield
Gothic architecture was, and remains today, imprinted upon Durham’s townscape courtesy of the Cathedral, Castle, and a host of churches. This talk discusses the often overlooked continuation of the Gothic tradition in eighteenth- and early-nineteenth century Durham. In particular it explores architectural work from repairs through to ‘improvements’ done on the Castle and Cathedral, as well the construction of the University from the 1830s onwards.
Organised in partnership by Durham County Council, and the Centre for Visual Arts and Culture and History Departments of Durham University.
Please note, a small number of tickets will be available at the venue on the night of the event.
