Church of St Cuthbert (West Bedlington)

The parish church of St Cuthbert lies on the site of an earlier Saxon church of which nothing now remains. The current building dates from the 12th century, the nave being the main survivor from this period, with later additions and rebuilding. The south chapel was added in the 14th century and the chancel was rebuilt in 1743 and in the mid-19th century. The west tower was added in 1868 and the north aisle, vestries and windows in 1911-1912. Several medieval cross slabs lie in and around the church. This is a Grade II* Listed Building protected by law.
