Opening times

Open everyday.

It was last restored in 1875, as much as possible of the ancient structure being retained. The unsightly modern windows were removed and replaced by others in the later Early English style: all the windows in the nave and chancel are stained. One hundred people can be sat comfortably in church.

In the nave are Roman pillars that support the south side of the main roof. It is thought the pillars were removed from either the Corbridge or Chesters Roman sites. We hope they do not ever want them back!

We have two bells in the tower.

Fewer than 30 people inhabit the village now although in Victorian times it is said over 5000 people lived here.
