Passing through the Monk's door of the cathedral you enter the monastery - now I could get some shots here :-)

The Monastery, founded in 1083 by Bishop Carileph (1081-1096) was both home and workplace for the Benedictine monks for over 450 years until the dissolution in 1540.

Address: The College, Durham DH1 3EH
