Abstract

Durham is an historic urban landscape with an historic layering of cultural and natural significance created over more than 1000 years. Almost thirty years ago, Durham was among the first properties proposed by the United Kingdom to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Though, unlike more recent nominations including comparable historic urban landscapes, its outstanding universal value was confined to the close surroundings of Durham Castle and the Cathedral. The layering of significance of Durham however, goes far beyond this set of outstanding universal values. This paper aims to reveal how resourceful Durham is, beyond its outstanding universal value. This paper presents and discusses the re-sults of a pilot study, using the walking interview and other qualitative GIS methods to analyze the effectiveness of walked interviews in collecting data regarding public perception on the built environment and its cultural significance.
