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.

St Paul's Seaton Sluice - Part 1

These old photographs show the original St Paul's Church in Seaton Sluice - courtesy of the booklet Seaton Sluice & Old Hartley - a history in photographs.

The recent photographs taken 17th August 2017.

The original place for the church was within the old brewery in the village and religious services being held from 1886. The Blacketts Brewery had been built in the 18th century by the Delaval family to supply ale to their worker at the nearby glassworks.

The congregation moved to the current building in the 1960's. The building had been built as the John Ochiltree Memorial Hall in 1914.



This shot shows both the church and the memorial hall.

Church of Our Lady, A190, Seaton Delaval - Northumberland (UA)

Originally the private chapel of the Delaval family, the church has a short and tall nave, lower chancel and west porch. It dates from the early C12, but may incorporate earlier fabric. Structural movement is affecting two internal arches and the east wall. This movement has been monitored since 1998. Following a specialist report in 2011, exploratory work is underway to determine the cause of the movement and potential repair solutions.

The effigy is said to have been to have been defaced by General Lesley's troops in 1640, the effigy itself dates from the 14th century. The Church was restored in 1867 having become a ruin by that date.

Ancient chapel celebrates 150 years since its resurrection
26 August 2017 by Ian Smith


The Chapel of the Holy Trinity, Old Bewick.

A historic north Northumberland chapel is celebrating 150 years since its restoration.

The Chapel of the Holy Trinity Old Bewick dates back to the 12th century and is said to have connections to Queen Maud, wife of King Henry I, the fourth son of William the Conqueror. There is evidence of an Anglo Saxon building here before the current chapel, which is predominantly Norman in style.

It was damaged on a number of occasions in Border skirmishes but was repaired and brought back to life on each occasion. In the early 18th century, the roof was blown off in a storm and it was left a ruin for more than 100 years, until in 1866 a Mr J Langlands had the chapel restored and it reopened for services on September 4, 1867.

Since then it has been in continuous use and has enjoyed a more peaceful period of its history. To mark 150 years since its last restoration and celebrate this latest milestone in the chapel’s turbulent history, television presenter and author John Grundy will speak at a service there on Sunday, September 3, at 10.30am.

On October 13th 1890, Mother Evangelist Costello, Sisters Gertrude Morley, Baptist Caffrey, Veronica Trenchard and Magdalen Mason arrived in Alnwick from Cordier Hill, Guernsey. They were invited by the parish priest, Fr. Robert, to take charge of the school, visit the sick and instruct converts. The community of Alnwick has faithfully carried out these apostolates since 1890. They joined the Institute of Our Lady of Mercy in 1983.

The convent began to expand rapidly, and in 1897 the chapel, refectory and bedrooms were added. In 1913 a new extension was built to accommodate the fee-paying school, opened in 1893. In 1962 the new High School was opened on the south road for day girls and boarders. Sisters also taught in the State Schools.

New hotel is looking to recruit staff

A new boutique hotel, which is opening in Alnwick’s former convent, is recruiting staff.

Debbie Cook is behind the renovation at the ex-St Mary’s Convent, on Bailiffgate. The 11-bedroom hotel, named The Cookie Jar, will open on Saturday, September 23, and the business is creating numerous jobs.

Debbie said: “Personal experience hosts are required for day and night shifts and we are looking for enthusiastic personnel to join the team. Staff will be actively involved in all aspects of guest service including food and beverage service, housekeeping, reception and general cleaning and preparation of all areas.” For details, contact Mick Holland by emailing [email protected] or calling 07832 572744.

The Cookie Jar has also launched its new website – www.cookiejaralnwick.com – and is now taking bookings for bedrooms and private dinners. Designed locally, the website not only promotes the new hotel, but also Alnwick, local suppliers and Northumberland attractions.

Debbie said: “We tried to make it very personal, but it is also very important to promote this wonderful part of the country. Northumberland is our home and many of the rooms are named after golf courses, shooting fields or great days out we have enjoyed in the county over the last 18 years of living here.” As part of the refurbishment, there will be a newly-formed garden and terrace, while the lounge will be open to everyone to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon tea and all-day small-plate snacks. A restaurant, The Bailiffgate Bistro, will open in 2018.

The present church was built in 1842 and replaced a chapel probably built in the 12th or 13th century and demolished in 1793. It is in Lancet style and consists of a nave, with a pentagonal eastern apse, and a western tower containing a clock and a peal of 6 bells.

The tower was built at the cost of Sir George Trevelyan MP when the church was restored in 1884.

In 1965 the interior was reordered, when panelling was removed and new pews were installed.

A few early coffin covers are preserved in the wall of the Victorian building.

This Church is very unusual.
This information is taken from 'Churches of Newcastle and Northumberland', by Geoffrey Purves.

The Church is very light and spacious.
