Its encouraging to see that the twin Wearmouth-Jarrow monastry is being recommended by the government for recognition as a world heritage site by the UN.
We already have two world heritage sites at Hadrians Wall and Durham Cathedral in our region.

Speaking as a Mackem, I hope this will result in some significant investment in the St. Peter's site. A new archaeological survey of the area within and around the church should be conducted to complement Professor Cramp's investigations of the Seventies. We also need investment in preserving the church for the future; the carvings on the Saxon pillars are almost invisible these days.

If we want the kudos associated with World Heritage Status then we need to demonstrate the moral responsibility and care that goes with it.
