Barnard Castle’s historic church with Richard III connections….



A 900-YEAR-OLD church {pingback to 19 July} has been designated as one the country’s most significant.

Here is the opening paragraph of the link below:- “….The grade I-listed St Mary’s Parish Church, in Barnard Castle, is one of 350 out of 16,0000 to be classified as being a ‘major parish church’ by the Church Buildings Council. Vicar at St Mary’s Revd Canon Alec Harding said: ’To be told that we are one of the major parish churches is a great thing.’….”

The church also has links with Richard III, who had considerable input to the stained glass windows. (My buzz about the windows will be on 19th July)
