More Churches & Priories of Northumberland!

When I started this section I hadn't realised just how many interesting places of worship there are in Northumberland. Not only how many, but also just how much history is attached to each and every one of them. As people drive around Northumberland I think most tend to forget there are also many hidden treasures in the form of churches in many of the smaller villages. It is so nice just to take time out and visit these lovely places. Even if you are not religious it is just nice to sit and take time out and ponder for a while. I do hope you enjoy this second section of Churches & Priories of Northumberland, as much as I have photographing them.
