Day 6 - York to Newcastle

I am utterly in love with this country.
Today's trip saw a detour off the A1 to the town of Durham, which used to be a mining town but had to reinvent itself after Margaret Thatcher's government closed the uneconomical mines. This is one of the most charming places I've seen. Unfortunately the castle wasn't open today, due to a university function being held there, but we were still free to wander the cobbled streets.
