Crossgate


Crossgate is one of the oldest streets in Durham; the main route west from the city centre. Crossgate begins by the intersection of North Road and South Street, by Framwellgate Bridge; it heads west to the medieval Neville's Cross, from which the name of the street derives. Crossgate was also an ancient borough (the "Old Borough"). The Church of St Margaret of Antioch on Crossgate (street) was first established in the mid 12th century to serve the borough.
