Welcome to the Norham Deanery website
North Northumberland is rich in Christian heritage: it is the land of the Northumbrian Saints, notably St Aidan, who first created the mission base on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in the 7th century, and St Cuthbert, the beloved teacher, pastor and hermit who had such a profound effect on the character of Northumbria and the North of England. The parishes of the Norham Deanery still reflect something of that character in a land that has seen so much conflict between Scots and English, and between different Border Reiver families, over the centuries.This beautiful country of moorland hills and wooded valleys, long sandy beaches and fortified castles now lies in rugged tranquillity, it's many beautiful churches speaking eloquently of their long history. The Anglican churches of the Norham Deanery are part of the Diocese of Newcastle and include the following parishes:
Ancroft, Branxton, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Carham, Cornhill, Ford and Etal, Holy Island, Lowick, Norham, Scremerston, Spittal and Tweedmouth.
