Right in the centre of Stanhope, this beautiful church and graveyard is well worth a visit. Rest awhile in its peace, and admire the artistry all around you. Woodcarvings, stonework, stained glass (Medieval and Victorian) and ornate needlework all delight the eye and soothe the soul. Look out for the Roman altar recovered from the moors, the Frosterley Marble Victorian font and a Saxon font. The graveyard is also of interest, with many headstones conveying the heartbreakingly high levels of child and infant mortality of the past. Don't miss the stone coffins from Crusader times to the left of the church porch, and take time to marvel at the 250 million year old Fossil Tree near the churchyard entrance. The church now has a lovely little coffee shop inside, serving homemade cake and hot drinks. Staffed by friendly volunteers, you're assured of service with a smile!
