Embleton – Holy Trinity

Driving north up the A1 for a meeting, I can’t believe how lucky I am to drive round such a lovely county … and call it work. Holy Trinity church is at NU230225 – another Merton College living, the College crest appears in a window.

Pevsner gives a long passage trying to work out what age which bits are – I gave up! It’s a rather lovely Nave, and then the striped stonework of the Chancel.


Chancel windows are 1884 Kempe – Northumberland saints in the East window. I
preferred an Evetts window in the north aisle which included this lovely flower:

Also a lovely collection of carved heads:

As I left the church, there is this statue above the porch. A sculpture of the Holy Trinity, by Christopher Hall of Jedburgh, 1999. The Old Vicarage looks like a Pele, and the church tower is quite impressive.
