St Maurice’s Church, Ellingham

On a recent holiday in Northumberland we based ourselves in the village of Ellingham, staying at the Pack Horse Inn (highly recommended – lovely staff, fantastic food). After checking in we decided to take a walk through the very small village and came across St Maurice’s Church.

There has been a church on the site since around 1150, the present building dating from around 1864. It is dedicated to the Roman officer Maurice who was martyred in Switzerland in the 3rd century for refusing to attack the innocent.

For a small village church we were very impressed with it, especially the quality of the stained glass windows.

You can find more photos of the church here.
