HISTORIC CROSSGATE

  • Description

    "...Crossgate, the ancient route west from the City , on a bluff overlooking Framwellgate Bridge. Crossgate is one of the oldest streets in Durham and is so named because it connects the city centre with Neville's Cross (where the remains of a stone cross still stand by the side of the road: a reminder that Crossgate was for a long time a pilgrimage route for those travelling to Durham to venerate the relics of St Cuthbert). It is very likely that from early times there had been dwellings in the Crossgate area and the surrounding neighbourhood, possibly even before the community of St Cuthbert in 995 established itself on the peninsula...."
