The North-East of England is rich in history, beautiful scenery and welcoming people. Celebrated for its Christian heritage, its saints are as diverse as the varied scenery in which we discover their history. This book is for pilgrims - both physical and metaphorical - who want the wisdom of the past to shape their present. In each chapter we discover the stories of the saints, both well known and unfamiliar, as we journey to the places they made famous. Some of the sites and saints included in the book are: * Holy Island - Aidan, Cuthbert and Eadfrith * Hexham and Heavenfield - Oswald and Wilfrid * Jarrow & Monkwearmouth - Bede, Benedict Biscop and Ceolfrith. * Durham Cathedral - Cuthbert's community
