Background

Part of the Durham UNESCO World Heritage Site, Durham Cathedral is renowned as one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe and the resting place of St Cuthbert and the Venerable Bede. Durham Cathedral is the only Heritage Site from the North of England to appear in this year’s short-list for Heritage Site of the Year, which also includes Stonehenge, Rutland Water, Tenby and Skara Brae.

The Very Revd Andrew Tremlett, Dean of Durham Cathedral, said: “Being nominated for this wonderful award has given us a fantastic opportunity to reflect on what Durham Cathedral means to the more than 700,000 people that visit us each year. Many people know Durham for the stunning architecture of the Cathedral and Castle on the World Heritage site: what is less well known is the Cathedral’s stewardship of a major part of the beautiful woodlands and riverbanks around us.

“The Cathedral also continues to be, first and foremost, a place of spirituality, sanctuary and worship for many of our visitors, and is a site with a living heritage. I am thoroughly looking forward to hearing about what makes this place so special to so many.”

Those wishing to vote for Durham Cathedral can do so at countryfile.com/awards before Tuesday 28 February.
