Church of St Cuthbert, Shadforth


St Cuthbert’s is the parish church in Shadforth, County Durham. It was built between 1834 and 1840 by Thomas and George Jackson (Thomas sadly died just before its final completion).[1] The church was consecrated on the 5th August 1839 by Bishop Maltby. It was initially a chapel of ease to the church in Pittington, until Shadforth became a separate parish in 1866, at which point it became the parish church. The church suffered serious structural problems due to colliery workings, and needed partial rebuilding in 1889-1891 and 1914-17.[2] The church is a Grade II listed building. The gate piers and gate are seperately Grade II listed.[3]
