This view of Old Elvet was painted on the Cranes summer holiday 1895.

Crane writes:

For our usual summer outing we went to Durham, and were much impressed by the grandeur of the old Norman Cathedral and its commanding, castle-like position on the height above the wooded slopes, and found much to study, old Elvet bridge being particularly picturesque.(1)
