This is the apse of Durham Cathedral behind the High Altar. Fantastic stained glass and wooden sculptured artwork. On the left in the wooden structure is the final resting place of Saint Cuthbert and the head of King (Saint) Oswald, the very reason why this Norman Cathedral was built. A new exhibition is opening this week featuring the original coffin used to house Cuthbert's body as it journeyed through the north of England evading the Viking raiders, it costs £7.50 for adults to enter this new exhibition but I really think I ought to take advantage of this opportunity, that coffin will probably not be seen again for many many years!
