Old Bewick, Holy Trinity Church
Headstone Summaries

Holy Trinity Church, Old BewickOld Bewick exudes a peacefulness and calm, it has had 900 years of ‘storm and strife’ from Scots invasions and the weather. It was built in the 12th century and restored in 13th and 14th, afterwards lying unused. In 1695 the Nave was fully restored and again in 1866 the Chapel was re-roofed. The Apse is quite a wonder to behold. There are both Anglo-Saxon and Norman influences in evidence both inside and outside the church.
