Days Out Attractions & Buildings
The original Anglo-Saxon monastery on the present site of St Hilda’s was founded in 640 AD by St Aiden, though it was destroyed by the Danes in the 9th Century. Cheers guys. The current church tells the story of the original monastery and life at St Hilda’s after the Danes — of how the church was initially built as a burial place for the DeBrus family and how it has now reverted back to its medieval purpose of serving the community. Tours are available, but if you want to guide yourself freestyle, there are display panels, sound wands and interactive screens to aid you. So, move your buttresses and go to see some lovely buttresses.
