Church of St Hilda, High Street, Hartlepool Headland, Headland - Hartlepool (UA)

Built around 1200 on the site of a C7 monastery, incorporating the remains of an early-C12 church. The church includes many Saxon and medieval architectural fragments and has undergone several re-designs, being fully restored between 1925 and 1932. It is on an exposed site near the sea. The tower has structural issues that are under investigation and many windows require repair. The building has been the subject of heritage crime. Funding for repairs is being explored following an unsuccessful bid in 2017 to the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme.
