Kevan visited the market place today and is photographed with Cole from Lumsden and Carroll who is working on the project.

Phase one has now been completed which has seen the red carpet area of the Marketplace being refurbished and improvements to the North End of Front Street.

The next phase of the project will open up the culvert in the town to create an open channel and is funded jointly by Durham County Council, the Environment Agency and the European Regional Development Fund.
