Went to pick up a parcel and ended up in church

Was out the other day and a parcel had to be signed for so this now meant we had to go the 23 miles to the office in Alnwick to sign and receive it.  As it was going to break up the day anyway we decided on a circuitous trip back, taking in food in Amble where we finished off our dining at Spurelli’s Boutique Ice-cream Parlour – an assortment of flavours that you don’t expect to find in a former small fishing port now a small marina.  We ended up in St Lawrence’s Church, Warkworth down by the river, not having visited this church in all the years we’ve lived around here. (The link above gives a very detailed account of the history of the church on this site).

It is a very striking building in the local sandstone, which has a tendency to look like melting ice-cream when it becomes heavily weathered.

  1. Wonderful old building. Our whole town is only just over 100 years old…

    • 100 years is still a fair age, depending on the design. It’s been a long time since we did a ‘church crawl’ as it were and we’ve never done one in our area, can you believe. It usually involves planning to see the various interesting churches wherever we’re visiting. Must try harder around here, it’s full of ’em. 😉 Thanks for dropping by.
