The World Heritage bid by the Twin Monastery of Wearmouth Jarrow has been withdrawn, following reconsideration not to inscribe in the Evaluation Report from ICOMOS.  The decision to withdraw the bid was agreed by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), English Heritage and the Wearmouth Jarrow team.  The ICOMOS report is available on the UNESCO website, as part of the papers for the meeting of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in St Petersburg in June and July 2012.
