Church of St Anne - Ancroft

Not Bradford but the Church of St Anne at Ancroft in Northumberland.  The church has been renovated a number of times but some of the original features remain including the bricked up Norman doorway next to the main entrance. As this border area was often raided by the Scots a peel tower was added in the 13C which acted as the living quarters for the parish priest until a vicarage was built at a much later date.

  1. This is quite beautiful, too. Something about the gravestones in the churchyard, very atmospheric.
