Made the 4 mile drive from Wooler to pay my respects to the allied airmen who lost their lives in World War 2 flying from nearby Millfield airbase. Their graves are all together and it is so sad to see the ages of them, age indeed will not weary them. It was 18.00 when we arrived and i tried the church door, sure enough it was open and on entering there are some beautiful stain glass windows, some modern ones for the airmen and one for the social campaigner Josephine Butler who is buried just outside the church tower. So much history within this little church, much of which i will now have to read up on. If you are nearby and have an interest in history then pay a visit.

This has been a site of Christian worship at least since 11th century. On entering the churchyard be sure to notice the war graves of some young airmen who died as they flew from Milfield airbase during WW2. Also in the churchyard there is a mausoleum to the Davidson family. Davidson was the Chandler to Horatio Nelson. There is a centenary window & sculpture in memory of Josephine Butler, the social reformer, who is buried in the churchyard. The chancel & nave date from the latter part of the 15th century. The church was restored by John Dobson in 1860. Be sure to see the ancient stone relief of the Magi set in the wall north of the chancel arch.
