DurhamMuseum and Heritage Centre, St Mary-le-Bow, North Bailey, Durham, County Durham, DH1 3ET

St Mary-le-Bow was once the parish church of North Bailey, closed in 1968, and now leased to the Bow Trust who run it as a museum of local and social history of the City of Durham. The building has medieval origins but was restored in the 17th century following the collapse of the tower. It is Grade I listed and contains fine woodwork influenced by Bishop John Cosin. The Museum has displays and collections from the 17th century to the present day, a special exhibition " the Changing World, Durham 1900-1920" and a garden with two sculptures by the local artist Fenwick Lawson. The Museum has some children's activities and a selection of replica brasses for children to do their own rubbings (small charge for rubbings)

This event took place in September 2014 and the entry is now archived.
