Whinney Hill panorama

Low-resolution version of a 110 megapixel panorama of Durham from Whinney Hill, including University College (Durham Castle) and Durham Cathedral.


To the right of the Castle Keep can be seen Durham Railway Station, and the top of the viaduct can be seen running horizontally between the Castle and Cathedral. Behind the Castle Keep can be seen the Obelisk, originally built as an alignment target for the observatory. In the far distance Pontop Pike transmitting station is just visible, some 10.6 miles away.


The full size zoomable image can be seen on the Gigapan site here
