St Winewald of Beverley

Today (27 April) in the calendar of early British saints, we commemorate St. Winewald, abbot of Beverley (751).

Not much information about him; sources are all borrowing from each other, I suppose, and concur that he was the second abbot of Beverley Minster (oh what a lovely church that is, later than Winewald though) and quite a successful one at that. There should be a synaxis of the saints of Beverley…

Holy Father Winewald, pray to God for us.
