    Default Medieval Church, Embleton, March 08


    This is an incredible little building just off the Castle Eden Walkway close to the A19. The Medieval village of Embleton once stood on the site but the church is the only building left standing, the rest simply mounds in the earth. It is well worth a little wander off the track to find it if you are near this place though. Some of the gravestones date back as early as 1814 so you are totally surrounded in history at this place.

    Cool place, I like sites of old medieval villages, even better that the church survives
