Following the predations of Viking attacks along the east coast of northern England St. Cuthbert endured a posthumous century-long peripatetic search for a final resting place. His journey ended here in Durham where is remains are interred in Durham's magnificent cathedral. The sculpture (in elm) is the work of Fenwick Lawson and was officially unveiled by HRH The Princess Royal in 2008.
