Church of St Michael, Alnham
Church of St Michael, Alnham
I am a little uncertain about the full dedication of this beautiful, remote church. Both 'St Michael the Archangel' and 'St Michael & All Angels' appear to be in use. Normally I would take a photograph of the external notice board to aid my Geograph posting. If there was such a notice, and I had photographed it, the evidence was probably deleted soon after my post. Another visit is clearly necessary in the cause of accuracy.

According to the Northumberland National Park Historic Village Atlas of Alnham: "the modern dedication of the church is in honour of St Michael the Archangel, but there is no evidence this predates the reformation (NCH XIV (1935), 562)".
