Over the past 10 weeks the world has changed due to the Coronavirus, Covid-19 and the country has shown its appreciation to the NHS, carers, frontline staff and key workers with the weekly ‘clap’ and many other initiatives.
One of these initiatives has seen various iconic buildings across the North East being lit up blue and have included the Angel of the North and Durham Cathedral.
This week various iconic buildings in and around Bishop Auckland have turned blue including Auckland Castle, the former home of the Prince Bishops.
In the Market Place some of the buildings which were lit blue included the Bishop Auckland Town Hall, St Anne’s Church, Auckland Tower and Mining Art Gallery.
The historic Eleven Arches viaduct and Skirlaw bridge also turned blue along with the Four Clocks building in Newgate Street and the Stan Laurel statue on Theatre Corner.
