Full name of the cathedral is 'The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St. Cuthbert of Durham'. Founded in 1093, the cathedral is a UNESCO World Hritage Site and a fine example of Norman architecture.
Even though I've seen quite a few cathedrals already, each one of them still manage to take my breath away. Though similiar in many ways, each one is different in its own unique way.
Even with a wide-angle lense, the entire building still didn't fit.
You can tell from the exterior, that the building has had a long existence.

Magnificent cross by the cathedral
These are tombstones
The English inscription shows the age of the stone
上頭的英文字也顯示出墓碑的年齡... （dyed = died）
Crosses of all designs
GREAT PEACE HAVE THEY WHICH LOVE THY LAW
Some inscriptions are more worn-out than others.
This is a Celtic cross
It doesn't take very long to see the inside of the cathedral, but it's definitely worth taking a look, as with all cathedrals of this scale.
