St Wilfred, Kirkharle

  • Description

    Information about the church and services. "St Wilfrid's is a simple but beautiful fourteenth century building in Decorated style, altered in 1771-8 (when the west gable, porch and bell cope were added by Sir William Loraine) and in 1884. There are three medieval sedilia in the south wall of the chancel and a piscina with a projecting basin. The fifteenth- or sixteenth- century font, which bears the arms on each of its eight sides of old Northumbrian families, was rescued from the medieval church of All Saints, Newcastle. The great gardener Lancelot (Capability) Brown was born here and baptised in St Wilfrid's on 30th August 1716...."
