The answer of course to the first three is at Holy Trinity, Old Bewick. The date is the day it was reopened for services after restoration from being a roofless ruin.

The roof had been blown off in the early 18th century and the chapel was restored in 1866/7.

We plan to celebrate the 150th anniversary of this in September next year.

As there are many people with associations with the church, we would like to invite ideas and suggestions how we should best mark this occasion.

We hope to include friends and families from far and wide so, please, let us know how you would like it celebrated and the PCC (church council) will do its best to include this in its plans.

Ideas can be sent by email to: or in writing to; Patricia Fleming, Wooperton Hall, Alnwick, NE66 4XS.
