Description"The Keys to the Past website http://www.keystothepast.info/Pages/pgDetail.aspx?PRN=N9768 says that "St Cuthbert's Church is a complex building with origins in the 12th century. The church was once much larger than the building that stands today. The 12th century church was rebuilt in the 14th century and was altered and added to over the following centuries. The unusual aisles are very narrow with thick outer walls and may have been built like this for defensive reasons. The church was restored twice in the 19th century. The graveyard is one of the finest in the country with an excellent collection of 18th and 19th century headstones, several of them with high relief carvings". The church is Grade I listed https://www.historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1155072 . My photos of the church are at http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=75262289&page=1 ."
