Comments

The founding of the St James' Anglican Church, Morpeth 'is said to represent the fulfilment of a vow made by Edward Close at the Battle of Albuera in 1811, during the Peninsular War, that he would build a house of worship if his life were spared." (Extract from , A bit of our story, see reference below.) The church building was consecrated in 1840.

More historical information/photographs of the church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 9/10/2019.
