Medomsley

Medomsley

Medomsley is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated to the north-east of Consett.

The Church, which is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene appears to have been started in the mid 12th century, extended in the late 13th century and as with many churches, restored in the late 19th century. In the case of St. Mary Magdalene, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair, and from 1877-78 it was vastly restored as a new roof and a north aisle were added, while still retaining much of its historic features.

Like nearby Ebchester, Medomsley's church served many inhabitants of Shotley Bridge for christenings, marriages and burials until the creation of Shotley Bridge in the 19th century. Again this meant that the of the sword-makers of Shotley Bridge were regular visitors of the church for such purposes, and many accounts of such events in their lives can be found in the parish registers.
