Discoverers visit places of interest within the region.  We have recently been to Ampleforth Abbey, Harrison Organ Builders in Durham, Ushaw College, Durham University Oriental Museum 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.
