The church of St. Aidan, built in the year 1818, by the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital, at a cost of £4,000, is a building of stone in the Gothic style, consisting of chancel, nave, north vestry and an embattled western tower containing one bell: in 1855 the church was restored and re-seated with open benches, and a new pulpit and reading desk erected, at a cost of £500, defrayed by subscription; at the same time the east window was filled with stained glass by the late Michael Spencer esq. of Walbottle Hall: there are 150 sittings. The living is a rectory, average tithe rent-charge £168, net yearly value £200, including 22 acres of glebe, with residence, in the gift of the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital, and held since 1886 by the Rev. Walter Longman Tucker M.A. of Trinity College, Cambridge. [Kelly's Durham and Northumberland Directory (1890), p.1054.]
