Church of St. Maurice, Ellingham, Northumberland

Although there has been a church on the site since 1150 the present building dates from 1862 but does include remnants of earlier churches. It is now a Grade II listed building. The name is unusual being dedicated to a Roman Officer who was martyred in Switzerland rather than the usual Biblical saints.

If you check my profile you will see why I had to spend some time taking photographs in Ellingham!

Moved to the Isle of Lewis in the The Outer Hebrides off the north-west coast of Scotland in July 2010 with the aim of getting out and about with my camera. Hasn’t quite worked out that way as we’ve spent the past 18 months refurbishing our house but the opportunities will come.

Meanwhile I’ll be going through my collection to pick out some of those that have pleased me over the years.
