Church of St Giles (Chollerton)
The church of St Giles was originally built about 1150, though only the south arcade survives. There are also a few fragments of 13th century work. Most of the building, however, was built in the 18th century. The church contains two fonts, one a reused Roman altar, the other dates to the 13th century. Some medieval carved, stone coffin lids are built into the south park. The remains of a late Anglo-Saxon cross (AD1000-1100) are also built into the north wall. This is a Grade I listed building protected by law.
