AboutSt Oswald's is probably the oldest of Durham city's parish churches. There is evidence for a Saxon church on the site, but the earliest visible part of the present structure is late 12th century. The tower is 15th century. The church was extensively rebuilt in the 1830s by Ignatius Bonomi. Internal features of special interest: medieval cross slabs; carved wooden roof corbels, choir stalls and parish chest; bells by Christopher Hodson, 1694; monument to George Smith, Nonjuring bishop and editor of Bede; window by Morris & Co, with story panels of the life of St Oswald by Ford Madox Brown; fine organ by Peter Collins, organ case with carvings by Siegfried Pietsch. Visits to tower and ringing chamber.
