St Cuthbert's Cave

  • Description

    "A large overhang in the sandstone outcrop along the ridge of Cockenheugh and Greensheen Hill. St Cuthbert's body is said to have been sheltered here in 875 AD by the monks fleeing from Viking raids on Holy Island before finally reaching a final resting-place at Durham Cathedral in 995 AD."
