Reviews

From 1991 to 1995 the Trust’s annual overview included “Durham Broadcast”, a short section listing new publications or broadcasts concerning the City. This is being revived, albeit in the different form of occasional reviews of material most likely to be of interest to members.

Derek Dodds: Durham City in 50 Buildings (Stroud: Amberley Publishing, Stroud 2019). 96 pp. £14.99.

Douglas Pocock, a leading expert on Durham’s history and a member of the Trust (and past Honorary Secretary), has written a review of the book Derek Dodds: Durham City in 50 Buildings (Stroud: Amberley Publishing, Stroud 2019). This book attempts to describe Durham in fifty buildings in less than ninety pages of text. Douglas discusses how the author has risen to this challenge.
