Bronze sculpture of St Cuthbert's "Journey"
Bronze sculpture of St Cuthbert's "Journey"
Fenwick Lawson carved the first version of this sculpture "Journey" in 1999 from seven elm trees; it is now on Holy Island. After it was exhibited in Durham Cathedral local people raised 200,000 to have a bronze casting, and this is now in Millennium Square Durham. It was unveiled in 2008 by Princess Anne. St Cuthbert's body was at Lindisfarne, but in 875 fearing a Viking invasion monks carried it away, first to Workington, then Whithorn, Crayke, Chester-le-Street, Ripon and finally to Durham where it remained.
