Getting a new passport at Durham

The race was on to get a new passport when I returned from the USA. Fortunately, the nearest passport office was in Durham, only an hour's bus journey away from my house in Gateshead. I decided to take a camera with me and use the opportunity to get some photos in one of the most historic cities in Britain.

Fortunately, the passport office was quiet. My application went through and I was told there was a good possibility I would get the new passport before Friday when I was due to go to Paris. Once all the paperwork was done, I had a walk around the city.
