Hunstanworth …

Trackbacks are closed, but you can post a comment.

… inspired by a tweet by Dan jackson, I headed into County Durham again on the Scrambler:
Co. Durham was among the saddest of the ‘sad shires’ of WW1 (with the Durham Light Infantry alone losing 13,000 men killed), but the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Hunstanworth in the North Pennines was lucky, and is the county’s only ‘thankful village’. The church is also home to a hand-blown organ by Gray & Davison which was on display at the Great Exhibition of 1851.
