Sights about the village

Duddo Five Stones is a stone circle to the north of the village.[1] It is a Scheduled Monument.[2]

Duddo Tower, south of the village, was built late in the 16th century.[3] It is now a ruin and a Scheduled Monument.[4] It replaced an earlier tower built in 1496.[1]

Churches and school

The Church of England parish church of All Saints is a Gothic Revival building,[5] imitating the 'Decorated Gothic' style. It was completed in 1879.[5]

All Saints' church replaced the earlier parish church of St James the Great, which was designed by Ignatius Bonomi in a neo-Norman style and built in 1832.[1][6] It was later converted into part of the parish school,[1][6] presumably when All Saints' church was built. The school has since closed and the building is now a private house.
