The church of the Holy Cross at Chatton stands on one of the lowest sites in the village and little above the flood line of the River Till. This renders it is unlikely that any church stood there before the eleventh century or the early Christian missionaries would not have chosen such a low site. We first hear of the church in Chatton from a document issued sometime before 1184, where William de Vesci is said to have granted the church of Chatton to Alnwick Abbey and this community of the Abbey possessed the church until 1539.
The Vicar of Holy Cross parish has recently retired. If you would like to contact someone from the Chatton & Chillingham PCC, or wish someone to contact you about anything on this web site, then please use the Contact Us link. For any safeguarding issues please use the Safeguarding link.
