St Hilda's church, Hartlepool

  • Description

    "The church bearing the name of England's most famous female saint is an ancient foundation, with monastic use of the site from the 7th century. Most of the present building, including the tower, is 13th century, but the east end was extended by Caroe in the 1920s. It is grade 1 listed. The heavy buttresses were required as the underlying rock of the headland is gradually but continually moving." Photo by Stephen Craven, 2008.
