Church of St Mary Magdalene

Church of St Mary Magdalene

The Parish Church of St Mary Magdalene, Whalton, is on raised ground to the south of the village, provides a local landmark, seen from many miles away.  A Grade 1 listed building, its tower and origins are probably 11th century, with the west respond (a half-pillar or half-pier attached to a wall to support an arch) of the north aisle, 12th century.  This is thought to illustrate that there was at least a north aisle by the early 12th century but its present form results from extensive remodelling in the 13th century.  There are elements of the building that survive from this time including the double chamfered three bay arcades and the west lancets of the aisles.  To the north is the Ogle Chapel, with at its east end, a large corbel with the Ogle arms.  The Ogle Chapel includes early armorial floor slabs of 1564, 1566, and 1613, and early 19th century wall monuments to the Ogle family by E H Baily, a prodigious public sculptor probably best known for his sculpture of Lord Nelson in London’s Trafalgar Square.  

The chancel windows, which date to an 1890 restoration by Hicks and Charlewood, are augmented by 14th century reticulated tracery in the chancel’s east and south aisle east windows. 

The font dates from the 1400s. 

The church clock, still in working order, is an example of an 18th century single handed clock face on the east side of the tower.

 A detailed guide of its history and architecture by Dr Geoffrey Briggs is available in the church. 

The church is open every day from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm and welcomes visitors.  Many visitors come to see the historic church and “The Whalton Christ”, a unique combination of photographs of the Whalton community that together make an image of the head of Christ.  It was created for the Millennium. 

Whalton is one of five churches in the Benefice, the others being St Andrew’s, Bolam, St Giles, Netherwitton, St Andrew’s, Hartburn and St John the Evangelist in Meldon, that are all in regular use, of significant historic interest and extremely picturesque. 

The church and its community play its part in the annual Whalton Village Show (usually the third Saturday in September) and various other fundraising events.
