Church of St Cuthbert, Kirkleatham


St Cuthbert’s Church in the village of Kirkleatham was built in 1763 on the site of a much earlier church, thought to have dated from 800 AD. The site of the church is believed to have been used as a resting place for the body of St Cuthbert on it's journey to Durham, his final resting place.[1] The Turner Mausoleum, attached to the earlier church, was built in 1740, by the renowned architect James Gibbs. St Cuthbert’s Church is a Grade I listed building.[2]
