Please remember that there will be road closures in Durham on the 14th July to facilitate the Durham Fun Run. A map showing which roads are closed is available here.

The road closures will begin at 4.00 pm and remain in place until 9.30pm. Footpaths will remain open so that movement through the city on foot is still possible; however, the Fun Run starts from the Market Place at 7.15pm so that area will be very busy at that time.

When leaving the cathedral after the service you will be able to use the pedestrian route down Dun Cow Lane and across Kingsgate bridge by the Student Union. For those heading to the station, the map below shows two routes.  The red arrows denote the shortest route which is accessed behind the Palace Green library and follows the river bank along to Framwellgate Bridge where steps provide access to Silver Street. This route has steep banks, uneven walkways and steps.

The black arrows show a longer route to the station which has better pavements. Please note that both routes include steep climbs and steps.
