Cathedral door opens
I am delighted to announce that Durham Cathedral has opened its door to my poem ‘Finding Sanctuary,’ which will be sold in its shop with proceeds going towards the restoration fund.
The poem was inspired by the ancient custom of banging the cathedral’s door knocker to request a period of sanctuary and has been produced on a bookmark bearing a picture of both the knocker and the cathedral.
Photographs were taken and the bookmark produced with the help of photographer Andrew Heptinstall whose range of Durham inspired photographs can be found at http://www.andrewheptinstall.com.
My thanks go to Andrew for collaborating on this idea with me and to Dr. Anne Allen who secured the outlet for our finished product. We hope that it will appeal to visitors to the cathedral.
