1601 Durham Cathedral

It's not allowed to take pictures inside Durham Cathedral, but I took this one from the cloister. Just take a look at these arches: You'll find them in several HP movies (= Hogwards) as well...:-))

This picture concludes my "Search for Harry Potter". I would like to say 'thank you' to all, who looked patiently at this set, who encouraged me with their gentle comments and awards, and who showed their appreciation for my tour into the 'Kingdom of sorcery and magic'

PS: ON 16th july, the latest HP movie will be featured; parts of this movie have been filmed in Scotland; maybe a very good reason for me, for planning my next UK-trip..:-))

  

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham, commonly referred to as Durham Cathedral, in the city of Durham, England, is the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Durham. The Bishopric dates from 995, with the present cathedral being founded in AD 1093. The cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with nearby Durham Castle, which faces it across Palace Green.

 

The present cathedral replaces the 10th century "White Church" built as part of a monastic foundation to house the shrine of Saint Cuthbert of Lindisfarne. The treasures of Durham Cathedral include relics of St Cuthbert, the head of St Oswald of Northumbria and the remains of the Venerable Bede.
