Durham Cathedral: New Shop Now Open

THE LONG AWAITED new shop at Durham Cathedral is now open in its new location in the West Undercroft. In a brief notice posted by the Cathedral on Friday 26th October, star attractions are billed as “a range of locally-sourced, bespoke gifts which reflect the Cathedral’s aims and values” alongside new products including “beautiful, hand-made Christmas decorations, mulberry silk scarves, t-shirts and ‘holy’ socks.”

Booklovers will be relieved to learn, however, that the shop still claims to offer “the most established theological book collection in Northern England”.

The official opening takes place at 9.30am on Saturday 3rd November 2012 with guest of honour Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson.
