Resting Place

By Philip_H
The church of St Gregory the Great situated in the middle of the Northumbrian village of Kirknewton.

Parts of the church date back to Norman times. However, Christianity has been worshipped here long before this. In the 5th Century AD, Saint Paulinus baptized King Edwin of Northumbria and many of his followers in the River Glen at nearby Gefrin. A monument, known as the Gefrin Stone is erected at this location. The churchyard of St Gregory is also the final resting place of Josephine Butler, a well known Victorian social reformer.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'On The Turn'.

Best wishes,
Philip
