Well behaved children over five welcome br / br / br / br / Moor End is a pleasantly situated stone-built house built in 1840. It is close to Durham city centre and the A1(M) with excellent pubs/restaurants nearby. The city can trace its history back a thousand years to the arrival of a religious community seeking a permanent resting place for the body of St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne. As a shrine for their saint they built first a wooden then a stone church on top of a rocky hill protected on three sides by the River Wear. br / br / br / br / Following the Norman conquest of 1066 King William also found this site appealing and realised it offered an ideal strategic location from which to rule Northumbria and defend the region against the Scots. The community of Cuthbert gave way to Benedictine Monks and a Bishop appointed by the king. They began the building of the Cathedral to provide a monumental shrine for St Cuthbert and the Castle to act as protection for the Cathedral and to provide a palace for the Bishop. The result was one of the most impressive construction projects ever undertak
