Rothbury United Reform Church

Opened for worship in May 1896 at a cost of £1,497, Rothbury URC was built on land occupied by the 17th century house of the Donkin family and stands on Market Place.

it appears that Lord Armstrong may have inherited the property in the will of Armorer Donkin with whom he was once in partnership.

Photographed 17th July 2017.

Seeing the scaffolding in Ken's new photos, it would be nice to think that - after more than 50 years of delay - they are actually thinking of finally cleaning the black soot off the church . . . but I bet that isn't what they are doing.

Such as shame, St Thomas' could look like this painting of it, one day . . .

Repairs to the roof are underway - this from the St Thomas The Martyr Church web site @ http://www.sttomsnewcastle.org.uk/ne...airs-start.php

Roof repairs start



Thanks to money given by lottery players, the church will be able to host many more events and visitors.

St Thomas’ Church at Haymarket in Newcastle has received a confirmed award of £105,900 towards essential repairs to the roof, and to install toilets, including an accessible toilet. Thanks to money given by lottery players, the church will be able to host many more events and visitors. The roof work is starting this week and will continue for about 8 weeks; we then pause for the busy season around November & December, and in January we install the toilets. By next Easter the church should be ready for much greater use.

St Thomas‘ is widely known. What most people don’t know is that when it rains volunteers have to move buckets to catch the drips, but we get no government funding to help. The church has no accessible toilet. What should be such a welcoming building is limited, and the people of St Thomas' long to return the building to being a centre for the community.

St Thomas The Martyr Church


Took a look at the works yesterday, 2nd August 2017 and indeed the repairs are primarily connected with the roof to make it water tight. Contractor is Team Force.

The church is of course on the Historic England At Risk Register.

Church of St James The Great, Morpeth


External photographs of Church of St James The Great, Morpeth, taken 21st September 2017.

The Honourable and Reverend Francis Grey, Rector of Morpeth as mentioned above was instrumental in raising funding for the church. He had honeymooned in Italy and was impressed by the 1112 Cathedral of Monreale, Palermo, Sicily and wanted a similar design for his new church in Morpeth.

The architect awarded the task of designing the church was Benjamin Ferrey who had been an apprentice to Augustus Welby Pugin. Noted for his Gothic designs it appeears that Ferrey was happy to turn his hand to the Neo-Norman.

The builder of the church was local man Thomas King who is notable for his construction of Telford bridge in 1834.

The foundation stone of the building was laid on 25th July 1844, St James Day.

The church held its first service on 15th October 1846 even though the tower had not been completed. It wasn't until October 1852 that a modified tower was completed.

Just been reading Steve Ellwoods latest book "Newcastle in 50 Buildings". Came across one of his recent photos of Blackfriars as viewed from Monk Street. Thought that I had a similar one in the P&T Image Archive but showing it in its near derelict state. Eventually found it . Taken in 1974.
