St Oswald’s church – Heavenfield is on the site of what is believed to be the location where King Oswald raised a large wooden cross and called his troops to pray before the battle of Heavenfield (AD 633) The significance of the battle of Heavenfield lies in the re-establishment of Celtic Christianity which led to the Golden Age of the Kingdom of Northumbria. The place of battle is now a tranquil hilltop church, a spiritual place which has been a place of prayer, inspiration and pilgrimage for centuries.
