NSt Andrews, Bothal

The Church of St. Andrew's is within a bow shot from Bothal Castle and was built c882AD. The foundations of a stone church have been traced under the present church floor. The Anglo-Saxon church was replaced by a Norman Church during the late 12thC by Richard Bertram, a Norman, who married the Anglo-Saxon heiress and in 1161 began to reside at Bothal. It was his son, Robert, who was the first of his family to be called 'Baron of Bothal' and was given this title by King Richard I c1199AD. Noteable features; the alabaster tomb of Ralph 3rd Lord Ogle, Norman Piscina, Jacobean altar rails, Elizabethan communion cup dated 1571, the bell turret and 13thC glass in some of the windows.
