Kirknewton, Northumberland. The panorama of hills, the presence of ancient ruins or the Church of St Gregory might cause visitors to call at this remote village in the Cheviot foothills. The highest point in the vicinity is Yeavering Bell, 1,182 ft high, 2 miles to the South East, which provides a viewpoint near the traces of a large ancient camp. At the nearby place called Yeavering, a mile or so East of the church, it is believed that King Edwin of Northumbria had a palace. He married the Christian Ethelburga here. Beside a particularly beautiful stretch of the B6351 stands a cairn, erected in 1964, marking the royal township known of old as Gefrin. “Here the missionary Paulinus in A.D. 627 instructed the people in Christianity for thirty-six days and baptized them in the River Glen close by”, the plaque records. The church has been rebuilt several times and probably dates to the late 12th or early 13th century. The present comfortable structure reflects the work of John Dobson in the 19th century for the most part, but remnants of earlier times provoke considerable curiosity. Both the chancel and the south transept are tunnel-vaulted. In the chancel the side walls are less than 3 ft high and extremely thick. In the transept there is no vertical wall, the vaulting starting from floor level. Both could have been part of a defensive building or one used for refuge, during the border troubles. Behind the lectern is a primitive carving of the Adoration of the Magi. It shows a stiff-armed Virgin greeting the three Wise Men. Each of the bearers of gifts seems to be dressed in a kilt and each has both knees bent to the mother and child. Experts differ on its date, but the charming though primitive work may have survived from a previous Anglo-Saxon church here. Some believe it to be 12th century. Josephine Butler, the great social reformer, is buried here. She died in 1906.
