St Bartholomew Church, Thornley Village, County Durham
St Bartholomew Church, Thornley Village, County Durham
There are two places in County Durham called Thornley. This Thornley, in West Durham, is much smaller than the other; both have a link with coal mining, in this case a history as long ago as 1569. The village itself has an even longer history, the earliest reference to Thornley is in a land grant of 1070-80.

The church was built in 1838 as a simple stone building. It was almost doubled in size in 1842 and altered to give a Gothic appearance. In 1891, the tower, octagonal steeple and outer door were added.

Thornley is approached by single track roads. The road into the village is marked as a cul-de-sac so is easily missed.
