Bywell St. Andrew - tower (south face)
See NZ0461 : Bywell St. Andrew. "St. Andrew's has a first rate Saxon W tower, the best in the county. It is tall and unbuttressed, with massive side-alternate quoins, and stringcourses above and below the belfry. Just below the belfry on the S side [seen in this photo] is a high level doorway with an arched head and projecting imposts and bases linking to a stripwork surround. The bell openings are treated in a similar manner, except that each is of two lights, divided by a mid-wall shaft, and with a pierced circle above and between the lights." {Pevsner}. "The tower is built partly of re-used Roman stones. The lower stages are earlier than 850 and the upper stages date from the 10th and early 11th C. The tower houses two small bells, the smaller cast about 1400 and the larger about 1550." {Source: Leaflet “St. Andrew’s Church, Bywell, Northumberland”; The Churches Conservation Trust.}
