Church of St Aidan, Tarset, Northumberland (UA) - Northumberland (UA)

Built in 1818 by HH Seward for the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital, the church has an embattled west tower, continuous nave and chancel, and north vestry. A porch at the base of the tower provides access to a simple, well proportioned interior. High level stonework is deteriorating due to water ingress. Rainwater gutters and pipes are in poor condition and some roof details and junctions are in need of repair.
