Photo Friday: Dun Cow

They say that monks wandering with St. Cuthbert’s body came upon a milkmaid who told them that she had lost her cow. The monks continued on, when suddenly they heard a cow mooing. Though they were unable to find the cow, they did find the perfect place to build Durham Cathedral.

(Note that any parallels to stories of how a sultan in the Malay world found the perfect place to build his kingdom are simply coincidences.)
