The Lady Chapel on the right is most beautifully proportioned with a splendid vaulted roof. In its east window can be seen the figure of Saint Oswald in whose honour the Church is dedicated. He was King of Northumbria and one of the founders of Christianity in the North and killed in battle in 641. His Queen is said to have been buried at Whitby Abbey but his remains are interred at Durham Cathedral in the shrine of Saint Cuthbert who is here depicted with the King’s head.
