Great Bavington URC

  • Description

    "Built in 1693, Great Bavington church is the oldest former Presbyterian church in Northumberland which is still used for worship (and the second oldest in England, after Tunley in Lancashire)....The church continues as the centre of the community and has grown over the years. The porch was added in 1725, with the date over the door. Look carefully, and you will see that the stone of the porch is different to that of the church walls. On the south side of the church you can see the remains of original doors and windows, and the remains of a high level window on the north side. Revd Forsyth made alterations to the church in 1869, which may have been when the windows on the south side were enlarged. The meeting room was added in the 1970s and, architecturally, is ‘of its time’. The stained glass west window was added in 1962 to mark the 300th anniversary of the Great Ejectment....."
