A little page from my field sketchbook. Recently had to do some research (scribbling) at Durham Cathedral. There are some some lovely Norman illustrations in the cloisters there chronicling the life and times of St Cuthbert (the cathedral was built to house his shrine). Reading up on it, it seems his sainthood is pretty much down to the devout way he lived his life, and exemplary services to Christianity. You've got to have a couple of miracles though...here's one that tickled me. I tried to copy the expression as accurately as possible.
I can thoroughly recommend a trip to Durham by the way, it's a beautiful place.
