Durham Cathedral Knocker Framed Glass Tile

The knocker on the Cathedral’s northern door, known as the Sanctuary Knocker, played an important part in the Cathedral’s history. Those who ‘had committed a great offence,’ such as murder in self-defence or breaking out of prison, could rap the knocker, and would be given 37 days of sanctuary within which they could try to reconcile with their enemies or plan their escape.

Part of a collection of glass tiles, trinket dishes and coasters, this delicate glass tile is sure to brighten up any home. Purchase it as a singular coaster or alongside the others in the collection for a range of North East themed decorations.

Optional extra - have your gift hand wrapped in brown paper packaging tied up with string and with their very own North East tourist tip.

Postal Packaging can be recycled except for stickers (we’re working on it).
