The Chapel of Saint Hild of Whitby, Durham Cathedral. 2001

The "sea" of the frontal continues into the kneelers and washes over sand to the land.
The kneelers measure eighteen feet wide and illustrate the map of the coastline with the towns of Hartlepool, South Shields and Whitby, where Hild raised churches, commemorated.

The frontal and kneelers were worked by the Durham Broderers using a combination of traditional canvas work (needlepoint) techniques, quilting, appliqué and surface embroidery.

The south chapel, dedicated to Saint Margaret of Scotland is in course of production and should be complete in 2003.
