Sorry, I’m diverting off course slightly here, but one of the things I love about history is being able to see things which have remained relatively unchanged from what our ancestors would have seen. Walking up old stair cases which have a groove worn out due to centuries of use! It really brings the past alive for me. I was just going through some of my photos and came across this beautiful (and over used!) view of Durham Cathedral. Seems the Victorians loved it too! Considering the cathedral has been there (in its current state) since the 13th century I wonder how many people have stood on that spot!
