The Durham Cow

A centuries-old legend explains how the body St.Cuthbert
came to rest at Durham.  Fearing Viking raids, Cuthbert's
remains were brought by monks from Lindisfarne to the
mainland for safe-keeping.  According to local folklore a
revelation instructed the monks to move the holy relics
to Dunholme (Durham) and a milkmaid, bringing
her cow to the town, directed their way.
