Church of St Andrew, Bolam, Northumberland


The Church of St Andrew at Bolam, Northumberland, dates back to Saxon times. The tower is of the late Saxon period, whilst the interior is largely Norman with the arcading dated to 1180-1200. The quatrefoil piers with their broad moulded capitals are unique to the church. The south door and the eastern section of the chancel are 13th century. During the Second World War a German bomb was dropped on the church and lodged under the chapel - fortunately it did not explode - a leaded window recalls the event. The bomber pilot returned about 60 years later to apologise an event.[1] The church is a Grade I listed building.
