When it came to build the south doorway to the church in 1630’s Baroque architecture was vanquishing gothic and here you see a fine example of the new style with ionic columns and open segmented pediment.
Internally the building is almost square and most of the furnishings 18th century probably courtesy of Lord Crewe, Bishop of Durham; box pews and pulpit and a highly unusual marble communion table given by the bishop in 1720.
The north aisle is the family mortuary chapel with a succession of splendid 17th and early 18th century monuments, all recently sympathetically restored. This is one of the most delightful buildings and indeed places in the south part of the county.
We would love to know how much you enjoyed your visit.
