Local History: South Church (County Durham)

  • Description

    "The village of Auckland St. Andrew, or South Church, as it is now usually called, is situated on the river Gaunless, which is at this place crossed by a stone bridge of one arch, and is one mile south from Bishop Auckland. The most important monument in the area is the Church of St Andrew. It was probably of Anglo-Saxon origin and there are still the remains of a number of Anglo-Saxon stone carvings. These were found during building work on the church in 1891. These fragments include the remains of at least one carved stone cross...."
