Scholarly Info
Description When Penda 1 came to Northumbria to destroy everything he could, the village in which Aidan 1 had died was burnt down. The buttress alone, against which the bishop had been leaning before dying, was not devoured by the flames. After the church was rebuilt, it was burnt down again because of carelessness. On this occasion too the flames could not touch the buttress. When the third church was built, the buttress was put inside as a memorial of the miracle. Since then, many obtained the grace of healing at this place.
