Church of St. Mary, Morpeth


The Parish Church of St Mary the Virgin in Morpeth stands on Kirkhill, approximately one mile south of the town centre. Much of the building dates from the 14th century, though its history goes back much further. St Mary's was Morpeth's main Parish Church until 1846, when the Church of St James was built in the town centre. St Mary's is a Grade I listed building and the churchyard is notable for having the grave of the famous suffragette Emily Wilding Davison. The church also has a Grade II listed lych gate.
