Church of St. Mary Magdalene, Mitford


The Parish Church in Mitford, Northumberland, dates from the 12th century. However, in 1216 the church and many of the villagers who had taken sanctuary in it was burned by King John. The church was rebuilt , incorporating the pillars, corbel, chancel door and foundations from the 12th century building. In 1327 the church was again damaged by fire, when the castle was also destroyed. The church was re-roofed and restored in about 1840, and then enlarged in 1870 by R.J. Johnson. The ancient bell now hanging beside the main door is believed to be from the 12th century and to be the oldest bell in Britain.[1] The church is a Grade I listed building. The Lych Gate to the church is seperately listed.
