Durham Cathedral was built in the late 11th century by William of St. Carilef, the first prince-bishop appointed by King William I (William the Conqueror). He is buried there among other bishops as well as the remains/relics of the Venerable Bede and Saint Cuthbert and Saint Oswald.

Legend has it that Durham was founded with the aid of divine intervention, in the late 10th century when Aldhun, Bishop of Chester-le-Street was trying to find Dun Holm, which he had appeared in a revelation to one of the monks he was accompanied by. While looking for Dun Holm, he encountered a milk maid who said that she was looking for her lost dun cow which she had last seen at Dun Holm. He took this as a divine sign and followed the milk maid to Dun Holm, where they erected the first part of what would become Durham Cathedral. In the legend, this is the first building built in what is now the city of Durham. The fresco on this postcard is of Aldhun meeting the milk maid.

In the Harry Potter films, it's Durham Cathedral that they use for Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral are together a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is considered to be the "largest and finest" example of Norman architecture in England.

I started collecting vintage postcards a couple of years ago. I hope you love them as much as I do!

Each order comes with a bonus random card from my collection.
