Getting here

The village church in Esh dates from 1283 although it was heavily restored in 1770 and again in 1850. King Edward I attended Mass on the 10th September 1306 while on his way from Durham to Hexham and left an offering of seven shillings. Another iconic person linked to the church from 1835 until his death was the British astronomer, scientist, mathematician and theologian Templeton Chevalier who was also the Vicar at the church from 1835 to 1873. He is buried in the churchyard. The church is Grade II listed.
