Modest little church in the centre of the island with impressive stained glass and some nice carvings. The churchyard gives a view of the Priory and across the bay to Bamburgh Castle.

How wonderful to call in here away from the tourists and experience the oasis of calm. Stunningly beautiful church with a lot of history.

Enhanced by several hand writtens anecdotes, especially the one about Norwegians visiting the church for its 200th anniversary. Suggestion that the Island was still at war with Norway since the Viking raids in the 6th century! A 14 Hundred year war! Very humorous!
