Discoverers visit places of interest within the region.  We have recently been to  Durham Cathedral, Middleham Racing Stables, Durham University Archaeology Museum & Tennants Auction House to name but a few.  We usually car share to travel to these locations, but sometimes a hired bus/coach has been used. Visits usually take place on a Friday at the end of the month.
