Part of the history of the Durham area. A nice memorial. It is worth reading about the Durham Light infantry and their exploits prior to your visit. You will appreciate the memorial more.

A new memorial in the market place right in front of the indoor market. The memorial commemorates the Durham Light Infantry. Spend a few minutes taking in the information on the plaque.

This statue is located outside the entrance to the indoor market. It is a little small compared to the other memorial in the market place and is not as detailed as other similar memorials I have seen but very important to the City.

If you want to know about the DLI this is the place. A unique insight into the history of this regiment and very humbling as there are awards for brave actions to see.

This lovely memorial standing in the Market Place commemorates The Durham Light Infantry. Judging from the number of people photographing it, it is well known and liked. It was nice to see people avoiding walking in front of us taking a photo .

Do not miss this superb statue that commemorates a magnificent and proud regiment that has much of which it is rightfully proud.

Send chills up and down when you see all the different battles the brave lads of this regiment were sent to over the years and how many failed to return

It has been closed for over a year now by DCC, much to the despair of many of the Durham residents. Some of the collections housed at Spennymoor and some at Durham Cathedral.

Nice little bronze statue in the marketplace. The plinth is quite low so it is possible to see the detail on the statue. An ordinary DLI soldier carrying his Lee Enfield rifle and also a bugle. Depicting the actions in the Korean War but also...More

Wasn't too enamoured, it was a newly opened attraction but unfortunately didn't appeal. it's a shop selling the usual gifts with a cafe not serving particuarly tasty coffe. It lacks signage, had to ask where the light Infantry museum was but there were no signs...More
