Durham Castle is a Norman structure, originally built in the 11th century as a Bishops House, but later donated to the University of Durham in 1837 for student accommodation. To this day, it functions not only as a home to over 100 students, but also houses the college’s library, offices and two chapels. The oldest of Durham University’s colleges, the castle stands on top of a hill encircled by the River Wear, and grants a spectacular view of the beautiful medieval city.

For the castle’s enormous great hall, Great British Lighting reproduced a collection of four light pendants in an antique brass finish, complete with acid etched storm shades.
