A cell of Augustinian Canons was founded at Bamburgh around 1121. It survived until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1537. Apart from the church there are some possible remains of the monastic buildings built into some agricultural buildings beyond Bamburgh Hall. The church is still in use and although originally medieval was heavily restored in the 19th century. It is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
