St Cuthbert’s church is a small church much altered over the years. The tower is thought to be 12th century with the main body of the church a Victorian building. There are some traces of early wall paintings. There are three bells in the tower, two dating from 1450 and one 1650 which can now only be rung electronically. There is the stump of a Saxon cross in the church yard which is thought to still be in its original position.
Cuthbert’s are once again ringing! – albeit only chiming the time. Here's a recent video of the chime:
A church has stood on this site for 1000 years. The current church has been the subject of four documented restorations, 1450, 1778, 1858 and finally in 2013 at a cost of £130,000 funded by English Heritage.
