Learn about a special part of Durham City or gain new skills through the Woodlands and Riverbanks Project.


Located at the heart of Durham City, the Durham Cathedral Heritage Woodlands and Riverbanks provide an opportunity for recreation and quiet contemplation, yet few users are aware of the rich natural and cultural heritage of the area. Durham Cathedral has recently completed an exciting, three-year woodland management project to open up the wildlife and history of the woodlands and riverbanks to visitors and offer people opportunities to learn new skills by volunteering.
