Archaeological Brief: St Andrew’s Church, Dalton-le-Dale

The link below connects to a  recent report was commissioned by the parish to document the history of St. Andrew's Church

“St. Andrew’s church, Dalton le Dale, is largely a building of 12th and 13th century dates, although evidence of a late 8th/early 9th century cross shaft (built into the south wall) suggests that it stands on a considerably earlier site.  The sub-circular plan of the churchyard also suggests early origins.”

This report reinforces the importance of the Gregson family in the parish of St. Andrew.
