If you're taking part in the St Cuthbert Procession from Durham to Chester le Street, you'll probably need to know where and when it will start. Here's the information you'll need.
The St Cuthbert Procession is the key event in the four day St Cuthbert Festival run by Durham Cathedral to celebrate the life of Durham's most important saint. Walking from Chester le Street to Durham, walkers follow an eight mile path to Durham Marketplace and then on to Durham Cathedral, recreating the walk the monks carrying St Cuthbert's coffin took as they fled Viking incursions to find a final resting place.

The St Cuthbert Procession follows a historic pilgrimage route symbolising the arrival of St Cuthbert's body, and covers eight miles. Children are welcome to go along on the St Cuthbert Procession, but organisers are asking parents to consider whether their children will be up to walking the route given that it is quite a distance.
It's free to take part in the St Cuthbert Procession but you'll need to book your place. You can book your tickets on the Durham Cathedral website.
