Description"This is an interesting country church and graveyard [] The Italian, Gregory the Great, was Pope Gregory I from 590 until his death in 604. He is the patron saint of musicians, singers, students, and teachers. He encouraged the conversion of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms to Christianity sending Paulinus, a Roman missionary and the first Bishop of York, and was held in great esteem in Britain after his death. There is a historical account by Bede of the conversion by Paulinus at Ad Gefrin, just east along the River Glen [], in AD 627 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Gregory_the_Great" Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2010.
