Overview

A church in a magnificent setting with a fine view of the Cheviot and Flodden hill from the porch. The building dates from the 13th century and has always been closely associated with Ford Castle and whoever owned it.

The west wall and the arcading of the south aisle are original, most of the remainder belongs to the well executed 19th century restoration and enlargement (north aisle) by the renowned Newcastle architect John Dobson. There is an unusual grave slab with bagpipes on it by the west wall close to the entrance door. Among the stained glass windows are two of particular interest. In the churchyard is the grave of Louisa, Marchioness of Waterford (the Reredos is a memorial) who lived at Ford Castle during much of the 19th century and had the Lady Waterford Hall built (as the village school) and painted the murals of biblical stories to instruct the children.
