St Maurice, Eglingham - tower stonework
St Maurice, Eglingham - tower stonework
The tower dates from the 13th century, but judging by the variety of types of stone here it must have been repaired many times since then.
Church of St Maurice, Eglingham
An Anglican parish church, listed grade 2* (list entry 1041975). Like many churches, it has been frequently added to or partially rebuilt, but the tower is the oldest part, dating from the late 13th century, and one of its two bells is original to that period. The village was the seat of the Ogle family who, not surprisingly, are well represented in its memorials, as are many former incumbents, several of whom were also Archdeacons of Lindisfarne.
