Colin Crosby Heritage Tours


Bywell is a tiny hamlet in Northumberland, beside the wooded River Tyne and 4 miles from Corbridge.

St. Andrew`s Church dates back to the Anglo-Saxon Period, with an outstanding tower, and is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.

St. Peter`s Church also dates back to Anglo-Saxon times.

Bywell Castle, built in the 15th century, has a massive ruined keep, and stands in the grounds of the 18th century Bywell Hall.

There is a mediaeval Market Cross, reflecting the fact that Bywell was once a thriving market town.

Bywell can be reached by a pleasant walk from Stocksfield.
