Cemetery notes and/or description:
Built about 1400, in the shape of a Cross, the church is dedicated to St Cuthbert whose body is said to have rested here a short time in 875, during the wanderings of the Monks of Lindisfarne. This church replaced a small Norman building. It is thought that the Vicar's Pele, a fortified parsonage, also dates from about 1400 when plundering by the Scots was particularly bad. On the pillars nearest the entrance are many deep grooves made by the fighting men sharpening their weapons.
