This adorns the north door of Durham Cathedral. In medieval times those who had committed a great offense could rap on the door and claim 37 days sanctuary inside the cathedral during which time they could reconcile with their enemies, choose to face trial or leave the country by the nearest port.

Will never tire of photographing this unique knocker- you do it great justice
Thank you. The light was quite flat and I wasn’t sure how these would turn out but Tri-X and D76 is a great combination for a reason.
Great photo. The b/w really captures the texture and form of the knocker. Thanks for sharing. Cheers.
Thanks…and your welcome! Thanks for looking.
