Photographer's Note

Taken at Durham Cathedral Co-Durham , this door knocker was used many years ago to provide sanctuary to those that were on the run from the law. The idea was you knocked on the door and were given sanctuary for a maximum of 37 days, after which you had the choice of voluntary exile or trial.
