Stone Auction

Saturday 19 October at 1:00 PM

Ever wanted to own a piece of history and secure Durham Cathedral's future at the same time? Now you can by taking part in Durham Cathedral's first ever Stone Auction.

Stones of all shapes and sizes taken from the top of the central tower during the recent renovation project will be sold with the help of the local auction house Anderson & Garland.

The stones will be on display all week by the DLI Memorial Garden to the south of the Cloister and the auction will take place in the Chapter House. This auction supports Foundation 2020, our campaign to build an endowment fund to cover the costs of the Cathedral's annual programme of maintenance.

More information including a catalogue of the stones will be released closer to the date of the auction. If you're interested, please contact
