Scremerston – St Peter (again)

I failed to get into Scremerston back in February as the church was locked. When they invited members of the DAC to do a visit, I volunteered. It looks very Victorian inside.

They have two framed photographs showing those who died in the two Wars – not easy to photo because of the reflections.

There are also five Evetts’ saints in the windows. Well worth getting inside to see. Peter, Nicholas, Cuthbert, Aidan and Mary.

[I am doing a bit of editing on 1 January 2016 to answer a question as to who these windows are by. The answer is Leonard Evetts – a little on this website, and his obituary from the Independent is here. The wonderful book Leonard Evetts: Master designer, privately published in 2001, is available through Northumberland Libraries. It says that these Scremerston windows went in in 1955-6. If you want to see more of his work I have a separate category for “Evetts’ windows” on this blog as there are lots of his lovely windows in Northumberland and the North East. ].
