Chapel of St. Cuthbert, Inner Farne


The Chapel of St. Cuthbert on the Farne Islands dates back to the 13th century or earlier. It was rebuilt in the 14th century and restored in the mid 19th century. The chapel is decorated with 17th century woodwork, made for Bishop Cosin at Durham Cathedral and brought to the chapel by Archdeacon Thorp in the 1840's. The chapel has a monument to Grace Darling, erected by Archdeacon Thorp, with a commemorative verse by Wordsworth.[1] The chapel is a Grade II* listed building.
