Overview

A warm welcome greets you at Holy Trinity Old Bewick. Old Bewick is a special place, sited up a single track track road with verge parking. It is a perfect place to come and just 'be'. Built in a truly tranquil spot, a hollow surrounded by woods and bordered by a stream with a stone clapper style bridge-Old Bewick exudes a peacefulness and calm in this busy world of ours. Part of the Glendale Churches Heritage Trail , Old Bewick has had 900 years of 'storm and strife' from Scots invasions and the weather! Built in 12th C and restored in 13th and 14th C. In 1695 the Nave was fully restored and again in 1866 the Chapel was re-roofed. The Apse is quite a wonder to behold. There is both Anglo-Saxon and Norman influences in evidence both inside and outside the church. It certainly is worth the visit and walk around our old graveyard. This beautiful chapel has services every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month at 9.30 a.m. Please come and join us- you will be warmly welcomed.

I have entered this church on several occasions as I live fairly near by and never cease to be amazed by its historic beauty and peaceful atmosphere. It exudes a sense of tranquility and awe. Situated in a remote rural setting, it is surrounded by...More

Free car park outside a key benefit as we only stayed a few minutes due to a weekday mass in progress. Best to check times before your visit, though detailed history info boards in entrance made the visit worthwhile

We found this church quite by accident as we travelled from Chillingham to Alnwick. We saw the old Celtic cross at the end of the road and decided to explore. Off we went down the old dirt road and there in the distance was a...More

After a good walk to Blawearie and the Harehope burn from Old Bewick we decided to visit the church and it was well worth the visit. The church has a long and interesting history as explained in the leaflet which was available inside the church....More

We visited to find a relative's grave and we're delighted by what we found. It is an example of what we imagine old churchyards to be, quiet, calm and restful. The church is very unexpected, small with a Norman Arch built and rebuilt since the...More

This was recommended to me while looking for things to do around Alnwick. I turned up on a sunny day in the afternoon and it was very pleasant. I took the time to get some photos as the cemetery was very photogenic.

We went to have a look round the cemetery, the church was closed, there are some strange (wrong word really) head stones, really fascinating. A bit awkward getting about when we visited. You need to have plenty of time to look at all the headstones....More

A place of peace and quiet, with a real sense of God's presence. This is a place of pilgrimage. Do not rush - time for prayer and thought
