The St. Hilda's Church is found in the city of South Shields, and stands upon a site that dates back to the 7th Century. A chapel of St. Aidan is believed to have stood in its place around 647 C.E. The mounment underwent restoration and renovation in 1675 and 1753, before it was majorly rebuilt in the 19th Century. The new structure still incorporated the font of architect Robert Trollop, who was responsible for the restoration in 1675, and well as a gilt chandelier placed in the church in 1802. The church is renowned for William Wouldhave's model of a lifeboat that is found suspended from its ceiling.
