Church of Our Lady, Seaton Delaval listed on the At Risk Register as http://risk.english-heritage.org.uk/...type=all&crit=

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.

That s really odd. There were today definitely lights on in the main 'hall' [the one level with Tower street] and people. I must admit I didn t knock on the door. Out back [can only be seen from above] there are fresh bin liners of garbage put out and even the lights in what looks like an outdoor school lav' were on.

It might be that the at risk has caused NCC to go in and sort it out. I think I was last in there about 2 years ago. Occupier was a firm of engineers Kensington and Partners, but they seem to be in Morpeth now.

Mind, would you want to rent a place with the restrictions, Scheduled Ancient Monument and Grade 1 Listed. I appreciate that the upper hall has in the past been used commercially but still, it makes you wonder.

Yes the toilets are downstairs and in a separate building - however they have doors on and lighting, unlike my primary school - frozen pans in the winter!

Just had an email back from NCC - they have indeed leased the building, so it wasn't the ghost of the Cavalier after all

Another local building at Risk - this from the English Heritage web site @ http://risk.english-heritage.org.uk/...type=all&crit=

Gibside Hall, B6314, Gibside Estate, Rowlands Gill, Whickham - Gateshead


Large house/hall of 1603-20, enlarged C18 and altered early C19. Fell into disrepair in early C20 and now a roofless shell in poor condition. Set in early/mid C18 park.

These images taken 21st September 2012:

Gibside House. The original three story Jacobean House was built by the Blackiston family in 1603.

When the House came into the ownership of the Bowes family it was much altered including the erection of parapets and cross loops in 1803-10.

The Hall was finally abandoned in the 1920’s when everything of value was removed to Glamis Castle, the seat of the Earls of Strathmore in Scotland.

Occupied by Land Army girls during World War 2 it was also used as a store by the local Home Guard.

During the 1950’s the roof was removed to avoid the payment of taxes and deterioration set in.

The National Trust have stabilised the building but there are no immediate plans for any restoration owing to the costs involved.

Benwell churchgoers give thanks as historic church taken off At Risk register

Benwell churchgoers give thanks as historic church taken off At Risk register
Nov 03, 2014 12:14 By Tony Henderson


Rev Catherine Pickford

Churchgoers gave thanks this weekend for the latest in a round of improvements which have seen their 1833 building come off English Heritage’s At Risk register.

The service of thanks was held on Sunday at St James Church in Benwell in Newcastle, which was designed by John Dobson - one of the architects who worked with developer Richard Grainger to transform the city.

In the 1830s, Benwell was a separate rural village full of grand mansions, and was not absorbed into Newcastle until 1904. The church is the burial place of Grainger, whose tomb has been restored, and other leading figures such as pioneering mining engineer and colliery manager John Buddle, who donated the land for the building, major 19th Century glassmaker John Sowerby, industrialist and coal owner William Isaac Cookson, Arthur Thomas Lloyd who was the third Bishop of Newcastle, and champion boxer Jack Palmer.

But the listed church has suffered from a badly leaking roof, with buckets having to be placed in strategic positions when it rained. The congregation was faced with a £250,000 bill for repairs. Help came from English Heritage and a Biffa award, but 500 people also sponsored slates at £5 a time as part of the church’s Raise the Roof campaign. Many wrote messages of dedication on their slates in remembrance of loved ones, or recorded the names of babies.

“We did not ask people to do this but it became very meaningful for a lot of sponsors to record the names which they wanted to be remembered. Those names will now be up on the roof for another 150 years,” said church rector the Rev Catherine Pickford.

It is such a shame that Gibside Hall is in such a state and is uneconomic to repair, I was there at the weekend and imagining how impressive it would be if restored. It is spectacular from the back with the hall sitting on top of a rocky outcrop/small cliff. The National Trust are doing such a good job of improving the rest of the site it is such a shame that nothing can be done about the hall

Life Transformation Church (former Church of St Paul), Havelock Place, High Elswick

From the English Heritage Risk Register @ http://risk.english-heritage.org.uk/...type=all&crit=

Life Transformation Church (former Church of St Paul), Havelock Place, High Elswick - Newcastle upon Tyne

Parish church of 1856-9 designed by John Dobson. Formally closed in 2006, the church lay vacant, and subject to heritage crime, until taken over by the Life Transformation Ministry in 2009. The Ministry plans to tackle the major structural issues from which the building suffers but, due to the parlous nature of the building, services are currently being held in an adjoining building. A grant towards investigative works was awarded in March 2012, with the aim of devising a phased repair programme. A further grant was offered in March 2013 for urgent repairs to the roof and rainwater goods.

https://publicaccessapplications.new...=N7B56CBSLOQ00

Must say I was rather taken back by the initial plans to remove the pews from the church given that they date from 1859.

From the Design & Access Statement:
The fixed church pews are believed to be original and date from 1859. They do constitute a significant feature within the building, but there presence does restrict the alternative uses that can be accommodated within the building.

However it is good to see that the proposal for the pew removal has been removed from the PA.

These images of the church were taken in April 2003:

Historic Northumberland mill will be restored after £82,000 Heritage Lottery Fund grant
Nov 11, 2014 16:00 By Sara Nichol


The Linnels Mill, near Slaley

One of the North East’s oldest mills is set to get a multi-thousand pound face lift.

A conservation project to save Linnels Mill, on the banks of Devils Water, near Slaley, in Northumberland, has been awarded £82,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project will also see the headrace from the Devils Water reinstated, meaning water will once again flow to the nearby ponds and water features in the area.

Built in the 17th century, the Grade II-listed Linnels Mill was used as an oat and barley mill until 1890 before being converted to produce electricity for the nearby Victorian house. The mill stood undisturbed, complete with rare machinery including an oat roasting kiln, throughout the 20th century. But it did eventually fall into disrepair and was placed on the English Heritage’s Heritage at Risk Register.

Now Ashley and Gill Winter, from the GR Winter Discretionary Trust, and the occupiers of the adjacent house, The Linnels, will launch a nine-month scheme of restoration work to secure the future of the historic building.

Works will include replacing the windows, repairs to the roof and chimney stack, internal masonry and stonework and cleaning of the mill machinery. Working with the North East Mills Group and its volunteers, the project will also give the public access to the mill’s significant historical and technological heritage for the first time.

12:00, 19 April 2015 By Mike Kelly



They are buildings which have been the fabric of communities for generations. But many historic North churches are in such a state of disrepair they have been placed on the ‘at risk’ register by Historic England.

One of the Grade I listed churches at risk was St Andrew in Winston Village, County Durham, which was in danger of collapse after severe problems with part of its roof allowing water in raising fears about it destabilising the structure. But the church has been rescued after an £83,000 grant was used to repair it.

It was only last October that it and three other historic churches in the North East were flagged up as structures of concern for the organisation and put on its ‘at risk’ register.

It is the Church of Our Lady in Seaton Delaval which is the cause of most concern. Mr Farrington said: “There are signs of structural problems. The east end of it appears to be moving and it’s one of the churches we are most concerned about.”

The total number of Grade I listed buildings at risk across the region now stands at 19. There are 393 structures given Grade I status in the North East, meaning they are among the most culturally valuable sites in the whole country. Famous landmarks with this status in the region include Lindisfarne Castle, Grey’s Monument and Bamburgh Castle. Grade I listed buildings that are still at risk in the region include the Union Suspension Bridge into Scotland and All Saints Church on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle. Historic England is particularly concerned about part of the castle wall in Durham and Haydon Old Church, rating them the highest risk category A.

Notes on the above ...

Don't worry about the round barrow at Dewley too much. It's nothing a pair of buzzards (or ferrets) and some patching couldn't fix. Most barrows have already been spread as fertiliser. Gibside Hall is on the verge of being too far gone - the rot's in very deep. Lovely church at Seaton Delaval. Great to see some excellent stonework (for a change).

Is all saints still used?
Not only is All Saints a gem of a church it has perhaps the most ingenious method of dda compliant level access ever seen!

The way I see it the interior of all Saints is completely redundant for any kind of use other than worship, a function dramatically dwindling in our secular society.

Are the stalls inside original? I hope they aren't, because if the round space could be cleared it would be a fantastic something. Sadly, I'm not sure what. But it could be amazing

Last I heard a small congregation of the Church of Saint Willibrord with All Saints hold their service on a Sunday.

The church has over the years been used for alternative purposes such as holding musical events but as you say any potential conversion would be difficult to say the least given its Grade I Listed status.

My understanding is that mahogany pews are original with its 18th century build.

I recently posted some internal photographs of the interior - check out http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=5252

On 9th November 1828 a serious fire occurred at All Saints Church, that could have destroyed the entire building. The cost of repairs amounted to about £260.
