Listing Text

Parish Church (formerly
25.2.49 listed as Whitburn Parish


Large parish church, C13 with C15 upper stage of tower and C19 restorations,
particularly of windows. 5-bay nave with north and south aisles and south porch,
5-bay chancel with north porch; west tower. Ashlar and roughly coursed rubble, all
sandstone, and Westmoreland slate roof. Diagonal buttresses to 3-stage tower, clasping
to chancel, angle to south aisle and south porch; decorated windows are C19 except
for parts of 4 on south side of chancel and one on north; priest's door on south side
of chancel blocked in 1867. Nave arcades have plain capitals bearing double-chamfered
arches. Almond-shaped window, with glass by L C Evetts of Newcastle, in the west
wall of the south aisle. Tomb of Michael Matthew of Cleadon, died 1689, by Wm. Smith;
reclining figure of the period, a skull between the feet; contemporary-costumed
weepers. Two pre-Reformation bells dedicated to Sts. Mary and Andrew; it is presumably
for this reason that the church is sometimes said to be dedicated to either saint;
however, its original dedication, if any, is not known.
