The historic city of Durham is the county town of County Durham, in the North East of England, located on a bend in the river Wear. Until 1974, the city of Durham was a municipal borough in County Durham. In 1974, it was merged with adjoining areas to form the local government district (with borough status) of the City of Durham, with a population of about 85,000. In April 2009, the City of Durham District was merged with six other districts of County Durham to form the unitary authority of County Durham.
