The Durham Record

The Durham Record provides access to heritage related images that are also featured on a number of different sources. Hopefully, this makes it easier to start to search and may well lead people to other websites for related resources.

This information is the result of more than 10 years' work. Its name is from the original Durham Record, the first of a series of projects giving digital access to heritage resources. The resulting web pages now give worldwide access to resources previously only accessible by visiting specific museums, libraries and archives around County Durham
