Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the main street in Bishop Auckland, a very interesting little town, not far from Durham.

There is very little information about this place on the Internet so I cannot fill in lots of details.r

We had gone to see the Miner's Art Exhibition which was held in the building, with the turret, in the centre of this row, between the St.Anne's Church and the white building.

The art was really good, so eclectic, and I was very impressed by the work of Norman Cornish, in particular. There were scenes from deep in the coal mines, pit ponies, children working underground, perspiring, black-faced miners and a whole range of heart stopping emotions.

As you can imagine, we were not allowed to photograph inside the building because of the copyright of the artists.

It was a curious day, weather wise. Here the sun was shining and it looks like gorgeous weather but earlier, I photographed the town hall and the sky was grey, with wet pavements where it had just been raining!

There were hardly any people around; it was like a ghost town.

I will post a couple of w/s showing the town hall and a closer shot of the art gallery.

Enjoy your weekend, Bev :-)
