Tour Norham Church Northumberland

Friday, August 22, 2008

This evening, I am presenting an image of St. Cuthbert's Church, Norham. From an architectural perspective, this is a fascinating building dating from 1165 (but possibly on the site of a much earlier Saxon building). The church has had a chequered history being occupied by Scots' King Robert the Bruce during a siege of the nearby castle in 1320. It was restored in 1619 with further restoration evident in more recent times.

Norham is a pleasant village, well worth a visit in conjunction with the local castle.
