St Andrew's Church , Bolam


This picture shows a  window commemorating an incident on 1st May 1942 when a bomb from a German bomber punched a hole  through the wall of St Andrew's Church  in Bolam, Northumberland, but failed to explode; see here for further details of the air raid.
The Church dates back to Saxon times.  The tower is of the late Saxon period whilst the  interior is largely Norman  1180-1200.
