Old Durham Gardens

The old Durham hamlet in which these gardens are situated has a heritage stretching back to Roman times but the gardens themselves date from the early 17th Century. Formerly part of a mansion long since demolished, the gardens themselves had fallen into a poor state by the mid 1970s. Since then however, Durham City Council and a number of supporters have lovingly restored them back to their former glory.
