St. Anne's Church, Ancroft

  • Description

    "The oldest church in the area, dating back to about the time of the Norman Conquest, if not a little before, and built by the monks of Holy Island. It has a fine Romanesque doorway, The tower (added in the 13th cent ) is a Pele Tower which served as the dwelling of the parish priest and gave protection from marauding Scots. It is unusual in that it is part of the church. " Photo by Russel Wills, 2017.
