Church, 50 metres north east of Croxdale Hall, Croxdale Hall, Croxdale and Hett - County Durham (UA)

Medieval former church with nave dating back to late C11 and chancel to late C12. Altered in later centuries but Norman south doorway contains the original door with iron hinges. On the Croxdale Estate and rarely opened up. There is severe damp in the building, both rising damp in the floors and walls and penetrating damp over the chancel arch.
