CIVIC SOCIETY VISIT TO ESCOMB AND BISHOP AUCKLAND

17th April 2012
Yesterday (16 April) 39 members of the Society and friends visited Escomb Saxon church and Auckland Castle in Bishop Auckland. We had a guided tour of Escomb church by Martin Roberts, and by two guides at the Castle. We were delighted to meet Jonathan Ruffer, whose great generosity looks set to save the castle and the important Zurbaran painints from sale.
