St Mary’s and St Cuthbert’s Church, Chester-le-Street
The Northumbrian association holds its annual walk from Chester-le-Street to Durham Cathedral in honour of St Cuthbert. It is symbolic of the arrival of the body and relics of St Cuthbert in Durham in 994AD, and the formation of the Anglo-Saxon White Church, a precursor of today’s great Norman Cathedral. The walk arrives at the Cathedral via Durham’s Market Place. The St Cuthbert Banner will be carried in procession from the Market Place to the Cathedral.
The banner and the walkers and welcomed to the Cathedral at 2.15pm for a procession and prayers at the Shrine of St Cuthbert. The walk is guided and is eight miles long. Please wear sturdy footwear and dress appropriately for the weather.
