Church of St Aidan, Thockrington


The church at Thockrington in Northumberland was built in the early 12th century by the Norman family of Umfraville. It is built on an outcrop of the Whin Sill, at about 700 feet above sea level.[1] The church is a Grade II* Listed building and the shaft of a medieval cross in the churchyard is separately Grade II listed.[2] The World War 2 pilot Constance Leathart, who lived at nearby Little Bavington during her retirement, is buried here.
