Christ Church, Hepple was founded by Sir Walter Buchanan-Riddell as a chapel of ease to Rothbury Parish, and consecrated July 10 1893 by the Rt. Rev Ernest Wilberforce, Bishop of Newcastle. The architect Mr C. Hodgson-Fowler adopted a simple late perpendicular style using local stone. The interior is distinguished by an Italianate Altar Piece, with a copy of Perugino's painting of the Crucifixion at Florence. The font bowl is possibly of Saxon origin and was brought from Kirkfield, West Hepple, the site of a former church.
