Plans were first made from this church around the turn of the century, as can be seen in this 1900 news clipping. It was actually constructed in 1905 having been designed by G. Baines & Son
There are two heavily eroded sandstone dedication stones, the first seems to relate to a Mr Doggart of Bishop Auckland from 1905.
