Church of St Hilda


St Hilda's Church on Hartlepool Headland dates from the 13th century, built on the site of a 7th century monastery. The church is dedicated to St Hilda, who came here c.648 AD to take charge of the monastery, until later moving on to become the first Abbess at Whitby. St Hilda's Church was partly rebuilt in the 15th century and was restored in the early 18th and mid 19th centuries. The church is Grade I listed on the National Heritage List for England.

St Hildas Church is a parish church in Hartlepool, County Durham, England. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building.

Clifton-Taylor includes it in his list of "best" English parish churches and describes it as "a glory of Early English architecture in its earliest and purest phase" and as an "architectural gem".

The tower contains three bells hung for change ringing, all cast in 1819 by Thomas II Mears, however these are considered 'unringable' as the tower is thought to be too weak to deal with the forces associated with change ringing.
