The mother church of the North Tyne Valley. Its foundation is attributed to the 6th C. bishop St. Mungo who was driven from his cell at Glasgow by the pagan King Morken and undertook a missionary journey through Cumbria to North Wales. The original parish extended from Hadrian's Wall to Carter Bar and was at one time the largest parish in England. There are traces of an Anglian church of the 9th C. but the present building is mainly 13th C. with sensitive 18th C. and 19th C. restorations.
