Church of St Peter (Hexham)
The Church of St Peter, was probably built in the late seventh century. It is likely to have been destroyed when the Vikings attacked Hexham in 875. Some remains may have existed in the 12th century, though it was probably in ruins. By 1310 it had completely disappeared. Its precise site is now lost, though it may have stood in the market place.
