The only church in Northumberland dedicated to St Oswin who was King of Deira from 644 to 651. Deira was the southern half of Northumbria which extended from the Humber to the Tees with its capital in York. Oswin's cousin, Oswy, ruled over Bernicia, which was the adjoining northern part of Northumbria. The church has no great antiquity, its foundation stone was laid by Mrs Richard Clayton of Wylam Hall on 1st January 1885. It was paid for by George and William Hedley, sons of William Hedley who had became manager of Wylam Colliery in 1805, and was closely involved in the development of the early steam locomotives.
