The parish church, dedicated to St. Michael was originally built in the 13th century. In 1853 it was remodelled by the well known Newcastle architect John Dobson. One of the Rectors of Ford, Hastings Neville, is well-known as the author of a book, A Corner In The North. This provides an account of life in Ford and the surrounding area at the beginning of the twentieth century.
