History of St Andrew’s, Bishop Auckland, County Durham.

Although there was a Saxon foundation, dating back to the 7th century, on the site of St Andrew’s, however, very little is known about it.  The current church was built in about 1274, in the early English style.  In 1295, Anthony Bek, Prince-Bishop of Durham, preferred more light that was provided by the existing lancet windows, caused extensive alterations, including replacing the east wall with one containing the 5 light window, and replacing the lancet windows on the north and south walls of the chancel with 1 and 2 light windows, and finally increased the height of the outer aisle walls.

At some point early in the church’s history, it gained a college of canons.

In 1417, Cardinal Langley, then Prince-Bishop of Durham, raised the chancel walls, added a clerestory to the nave and most importantly for this site, added the choir stalls with their misericords.

It appears that nothing much then happened to the church until 1864 when the chancel arch was replaced.  In 1881 the south transept was re-built a new organ loft was installed, along with a new organ. And finally in 1926 a war memorial chapel dedicated to the 6th Battalion, Durham Light Infantry, was consecrated in the south bay of the south transept.
