As well as being a beautiful building I love this place for the interesting graveyard. Many very old stones and four of these are grade 2 listed because of their inscriptions.

This church has three fonts of various ages, some fairly interesting glass and some very good applique embroidery. There is also an enormous fossilized tree in the church yard. Worth a look if you're in Stanhope.
