In the south aisle of St Mary’s parish church, Holy Island stands this imposing sculpture known as Cuthbert's Journey or The Journey, depicting the monks of Lindisfarne carrying St.Cuthbert's body on the first stage of its journey to Durham. The sculpture is an acclaimed work of Dr Fenwick Lawson and is made up of 35 pieces of elm, carved principally with a chain-saw in 1999. Since 2005 it has been on loan to St Mary's church and a bronze copy has been placed in the Millennium Square in Durham, thus marking the start and finishing places of the journey of St Cuthbert's coffin between 698 and c.920.

Thanks for all the recent clicks, comments and good wishes for 2014 Grin

Best wishes,
Philip

This is where it ought to be. Much better placed than the bronze cast that has been languishing unloved in the modern precinct in Durham for years. Very well done.
