NE48 4DH

St Aiden’s Church in Throckrington. The building dates back from the 11th century. It is situated on an outcrop of the whinsill and silhouetted against the skyline. Pevsner describes the church as “high up and solitary except for one farm. The church has “lost” its village possibly through a sailor bringing the plague with the consequence that the housing may have been torched.
