Ebchester, Durham

Ebchester is a village in County Durham, in England. It is situated to the north of Consett and to the south east of Whittonstall. The parish church, which is dedicated to St. Ebba is of ambiguous origin, being of partly Norman construction with a foundation, described as being pre-Conquest. Much of the stone in the walls and doorway had been taken from Roman rubble of the fort of Vindomora, on which most of the village is located.
