Holy Cross Church (Haltwhistle)

The parish church is built in Early English style dating back to the 12th or 13th century. It was restored in the 1870s but the medieval work is well-preserved. Around the outside of the church is a series of buttresses that are probably part of the original 13th century building. This is a Grade I Listed Building protected by law.
