Church of St Anne Ancroft
NU 002-452 Northumberland England

Church of St Anne AncroftChurch of St Anne was originally a Norman chapel of ease, with a 12th century nave. In the late 13th century, a three storey defensible church tower, with a tunnel vaulted ground floor, was built into the west end. It blocked the south doorway and entry to the tower was only via the church, with a spiral stair giving access to the upper floors. The later doorway onto the churchyard is possibly from the 19th century, when the church was heavily restored in the Romanesque style. 3 miles south-east is Haggerston Castle and 5 miles south-west is Duddo Castle.
