Blanchland, The Village c.1935

More about this scene


Caption for Blanchland, The Village C1935: This view features the church of St Mary the Virgin. It is unusual in that it is an L-plan building incorporating the Abbey chancel, crossing and north transept with its 13th-century tower and 14th-century belfry. Also featured is the bridge over the Derwent by which visitors from the south enter the village. Those coming from the north pass under the Abbey's embattled 15th-century gatehouse.

Memories of Blanchland
