In 875AD terror fell on the North of England, the people of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, fled taking their most treasured possessions, the body of their saint and bishop, Cuthbert, Patron Saint of the North, and the Lindisfarne Gospels which they had made in his honour.For 7 years they wandered the North, keeping alive their religion and the identity of their people, the Northumbrian English. At last they settled at Chester-le-street, and then Durham, where a mighty cathedral was built.Wherever the coffin rested a church dedicated to Cuthbert was to be built.Now you can walk in the footsteps of the Saint and his Community.Follow the route of Cuthbert’s coffin, on foot or bike, across the length and breadth of the North.

There are 40 walks and suggestions for others.These trails can be started at any point, walked in any direction, they cover the glorious coast of Northumberland, the pretty valleys of the Tweed, Rede, Tyne, Eden and Cocker, the wild moors of Northumberland and Cumbria.

They can be a day out, a weekend’s walk, or a life time obsession…I know. Besides there is less chance today of meeting a Viking.The walks are all on rights of way or permitted paths, they often utilize an already marked trail.

One from Chester-le-Street to Durham is marked with our waymarker of Cuddy’s Corse, and is leafleted.On the way collect images of Cuthbert, which are scattered all over our land. Over 40 Cuthbert churches, statues, stained glass, paintings, wells, stones. You will find his cross on Universities, Hospices, taxis, and beer bottles.
