St. Ebba's Church, Ebchester, Consett (Ebchester)

St. Ebba's church dates back to Anglo-Saxon times. Most of the building can be dated to the first half of the 11th century. The bell gable was added to the building in the 13th century and the south porch was added in 1876.

The church lies in the middle of the ruins of Ebchester Roman fort. It is thought that most of the stone used to build the church was collected from these ruins.
