Rowers celebrate historic victory.
More than a century and a half later, they were still celebrating with the Henley of the North. This picture from May 1971 shows the Durham Regatta.
Four cups were being rowed for over the "long course" which finished at Count's Corner. In all there were about 80 races with 600 oarsmen taking part.
The long course had been closed for the previous two regattas because of construction of a new road bridge.
The one-and-a-quarter mile stretch from Pelaw Wood to Count's Corner contained two sharp bends and was crossed by the narrow arches of Elvet Bridge.
