A splendid memorial

Completed in 1833, this splendid classical building with its domed tower was designed by Sir Robert Smirke for the 4th Duke of Newcastle as a mausoleum for his wife. The nave is separated from the mausoleum by an elegant Ionic reredos screen. Inside there are some stunning marble effigies.

    Came across this church completely by accident, coming off the A1 to find a quiet place to have my picnic lunch. There were instructions for getting a key, but I decided just to walk around the outside. All very interesting, and next time I will try to make arrangements to see the inside. Extraordinary to find this in such a comparatively isolated place, and also to read on the noticeboard the story of the Lancaster bomber crash in 1943 in a nearby field. Much information for thought.

Keyholder

If the access information for this church is listed as 'Keyholder nearby', this means that the key is kept by one of our invaluable volunteer 'keyholders', who usually live just a short walk from the church and can give visitors the key; sometimes this is a nearby hotel, pub, library, art gallery or other venue. You will find instructions explaining how to get the key when you arrive at the church.

Facilities

Due to the historic nature of our buildings, only a very small number of them have heating or running water meaning that they can be cold, and very rarely have toilet facilities. The lighting is usually operated via a 'push button' timer or a motion sensor. We do apologise for any inconvenience the lack of facilities may cause.
