Tweedmouth – St Bartholomew & St Boisil (again)

  • Description

    "....the church is dedicated to St Bartholomew and St Boisil – Boisil being re-established in 1995. Boisil was the prior of the abbey that Aidan had founded at Melrose, and it was to him Cuthbert went when God called him out of the fields into the monastery.

The first written record of the church is dated 1145..."
