Church of Our Lady, Seaton Delaval, Seaton Valley - Northumberland (UA)

Originally the private chapel of the Delaval family, the church has a short and tall nave, lower chancel and west porch. It dates from the early-C12, but may incorporate earlier fabric. Structural movement, which is affecting two internal arches and the east wall, has been monitored since 1998. Following a specialist report in 2011, exploratory work is underway to determine the cause of the movement and potential repair solutions. This work is being funded through the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme, with advice provided by Historic England.
