Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is All Saints Church at Weybourne.

Please click on this link to see the photograph much larger and clearer.

Weybourne was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Wabrunna. At that time a Saxon church served the village. Sometime around AD 1200 an Augustinan priory was founded on the site of the Saxon church.

The present church grew out of a 13th century Priory of Augustinian Canons. The impressive ruins of the early Norman tower remain to the north of the present chancel and much of the outline of the Priory can still be seen.

As a workshop, I will post the remains of the priory.

But, I also wanted to show you the construction of the walls. You can clearly see both in the wall surrounding the church and the church walls themselves, the walls are made from pebbles. I noticed this use of pebbles in ulding all over the area. I suppose, with such easy access to the beaches, pebbles become an easily available material.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
