Trip Report Saxon and Norman churches in Northumbria

Jump to last reply

We have spent a couple of holidays in Durham and Northumberland, mainly visiting some of the lovely old churches.

Northumbria was the centre of Christianity in the C7th with Cuthbert, Aidan and Bede. Many of the churches are Saxon foundations and still contain Saxon work. There is the Saxon crypt in Hexham Abbey

The tiny church at Escomb in County Durham is possibly the best example of a Saxon church in England and is one of the oldest churches still in regular use.

St Andrews Church in Bywell has a splendid Saxon tower

Corbridge church has a Saxon arch beneath the tower made from reused Roman stones.

Durham Cathedral, the burial place of Cuthbert and Bede must be one of the best examples of Norman architecture in the country.

On a smaller scale is the lovely Norman church at Norham.
