A place of pilgrimage


On Hadrian’s Wall at Heavenfield is the small church of St Oswald it is believed to be built at the site where King Oswald raised a large wooden cross & called his troops to pray before the Battle of Heavenfield in AD 633. The battle re-established Celtic Christianity in the Kingdom of Northumbria. The Church for centuries & today is a place of pilgrimage and a part of St Cuthbert’s Way.
