Durham Cathedral Nave

Here is a photograph showing the Nave of Durham Cathedral in the North East of England. The Cathedral was built in the 11th Century as a place of worship, specifically to house the shrine of the North's best-loved saint, Cuthbert. As well as containing the relics of St. Cuthbert the Cathedral is also home to the remains of the Venerable Bede.


It is widely regarded as one of the finest buildings in Britain and rightfully gained its status as a World Heritage Site 23 years ago.


Visit Durham Cathedral website for more information.


*More photos and information will follow, I spent a day in Durham yesterday and am still working my way through several memory cards!
