This planning application for the churches roof reminded me that I had taken these photographs way back in 2000.

Historically the Anglican church was built in 1866 as a chapel of ease for St Michael and All Angels, Newburn. Most of the building costs were brn by Messrs Spencers of Newburn Steelworks.

It became a parish church in its own right in 1899, covering the area of Westerhope, Whorlton, Callerton and North Walbottle.

The churchyard which stands on the other side of the road was opened in the early 1900's and was used up until 1976 and is contains at least 1.240 bodies.

On This Day In History - 21st July 1765

This report comes from John Sykes in his Local Records for this day in history, 21st July 1765.

In consequence of the ruinous state of St. Anne's chapel, at the east end of Sandgate, Newcastle, it was advertised that divine service would commence on the above day, and continue to be performed, in the Shipwrights' Hall (Carpenter's Tower) every Sunday, in the morning and afternoon, until the new chapel was finished, the service commencing at the same time with All Saints'.

The chapel and ground were consecrated by Bishop Trevor, September 2nd, 1768.

No interment had taken place in this chapel ground from the time of its consecration until April 30th, 1828, when the remains of Mr. George Henderson, of St. Anne's Row (adjoining the ground), were interred there. From the crowded state of the churchyards in Newcastle, this ground was opened to the public as a place of general sepulture.

A large concourse of people assembled on the occasion, and the solemn and impressive service was rendered by the Rev. John Dodd, vicar of Newcastle, to whom the public were indebted for this arrangement.

It may be interesting to future historians to know that Mr. Henderson's grave was dug close to the south-east angle of the
chapel.

The present chapel was built by Mr. Newton, architect, with the stones of the old town's wall, which formerly ran along the Quayside.

The upper part of the steeple having for a considerable time been out of its perpendicular, and its fall apprehended, it was, in October, 1826, taken down and rebuilt with larger stones than had been before used in its erection.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some notes that I have - St Ann's Church - City Road A very pleasant church, hidden away to the side of City Road in an area known as Battlefields. Consecrated in 1768, it is built on the site of a medieval Chapel. The stone used to build the church was taken from sections of the Town Walls which ran alongside the Quayside. The churchyard was the last in the City to be closed for burials and contains a mass grave of those who died from the last great cholera epidemic.

The church was built, from stone "robbed out" from the former Town Walls, in 1768. The site had previously held a small chapel and it is known that the land had been used for religious purposes since medieval times. Indeed there is reference to the chapel being used in the reign of Queen Elizabeth 1 to house those suffering from the plague. Further details are that in the reign of Charles the second it was reported that burials were taking place at the chapel of persons who had been ex-communicated. The chapel grounds also contained St Ann's Pant which was one of the supplies of water to Sandgate.

In 1682 the chapel was renovated as the Chapel of Ease to All Saints.

The chapel was demolished in 1768 when the "modern day" St Ann's was built and consecrated.

The churchyard was one of the last within the City to be closed to burials. The graveyard contains a mass grave of victims of the last "great" cholera epidemic, although the grave appears to be unmarked.

The 1768 church was designed by William Newton for the Newcastle Corporation to a classical theme. The front entrance consists of four Tuscan columns.

Thieves break into Bamburgh church and steal armour that has been there for 400 years

Makes my blood boil when I read about historical items being stolen, especially when they are on public display and thus visible to all to enjoy.

This article from today's Chronicle Live, copyright NCJMedia Ltd @ http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/news/...-steal-7625867

Thieves break into Bamburgh church and steal armour that has been there for 400 years
Aug 16, 2014 15:03 By Sarah Scott

Heartless thieves broke into a North church and stole ancient armour which had been hanging for more than 400 years.

Breaking into St Aidans Church, on Radcliffe Road in Bamburgh, Northumberland, the thieves climbed up ancient stone carvings behind the altar to take the items. The theft is believed to have happened between midnight, on Saturday, April 26, and 4.55pm, on Friday, August 15.

While climbing to steal the armour, the thieves caused damage to the stone work in the process. They made off with a 17th century lobster pot-style armoured helmet, similar to a Civil War roundhead-style and a pair of ancient metal gauntlets or armoured gloves.

These items have hung in the church for more than 400 years and enquiries are underway to trace them and return them to their rightful place.

Police are appealing for any witnesses to the theft or anyone who knows of the items’ whereabouts to come forward. People can contact police on 101, extension 69191, quoting log number 877 15/08/14, or the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The Church of the Venerable Bede, West Road/Benwell Grove, Newcastle.

The Church of the Venerable Bede is located on the corner of West Road and Benwell Grove.

The present church dates from 1936 but the first Venerable Bede was a wooden building dating from 1904.

The 1936 building was designed in an Art Deco/Arts and Craft style by Professor W.H. Edwards (1898 - 1964), Head of Architecture at King's College (Newcastle University).

The Holy Saviours Church, Sugley

This church at Sugley (Lemington) is rather unusual as its orientation is north to south rather than the usual east to west, the reason for this being the existence of a disused pit shaft in the area which forced the building line.

Designed by Newcastle Architect Benjamin Green in an Early English style and it opened in 1837.

Built as a chapel of ease to St Michaels Newburn , it became a separate parish church in 1887.

The east window, depicts the Redeemer, St. John the Baptist and St. John the Evangelist, is by William Wailes to a design by Pugin.

Unfortunately it was closed during my visit.

On This Day In History - 9th September 1839

This piece from Thomas Fordyce's Local Records for this day in history, 9th September 1839 had me searching to see which Church he was actually talking about. In the passage no mention of the Churches name is made, rather strange I thought! - anyway, the Church in question is Holy Saviour's which has its own web site @ http://www.holysaviours.org.uk/
some good information on the Churches history can be found there.

The foundation-stone of a new church was laid at Tynemouth by M. Bell, esq., M.P., who appeared as the representative of his grace the Duke of Northumberland, who was unavoidably absent through indisposition.

The site on which the church is built was presented by his grace, together with a donation of £200 towards the endowment.

Messrs. John and Benjamin Green, of Newcastle, were the architects for the building, which is a great ornament to the village of Tynemouth. The style of architecture is of the 15th century. There is a tower at the west end, surmounted by a spire, 95 feet in height. There are 500 sittings on the ground floor, 250 of which are free.

One interesting fact about the Church is the fact that the 95 feet high spire no longer exists - this is what the Holy Saviour's web site has to say about it:

"War conditions contributed to the removal of the spire about 1949. Vibrations from anti-aircraft batteries along the Broadway may have been the cause, though there was concern about its condition as early as 1936. At all events, the War Damage Commission agreed to pay for demolition."

This is the only Church of England church in Tynemouth and was originally consecrated (11th August 1841 by Bishop Edward Maltby) as a chapel of ease to Christ Church, North Shields. It became a parish church in its own right on 16th April 1861.

The Duke of Northumberland paid for the church to be built between 1839 and 1841, to a design by Newcastle based son and father, John and Benjamin Green. There were later enlargements to a design by F.R.N. Haswell, a North Shields based architect when the chancel was enlarged in 1884. The west porch to the church was added in 1972.

Internally the panelled reredos and chancel fittings are by W.S. Hicks.

A Grade II Listed building this is the listing text:

Church of St Jude, Knarsdale - Volume 1

The present church dates from 1833 but the first mention is in 1135. The 1833 building replaced a one which by 1810 had become ruinous. Evidently it had no dedication until it was put under the patronage of St Jude in 1968.
(Source: Churches of Newcastle and Northumberland - a sense of place by Geoffrey Purves).

Pesvner advises that the chancel was added in 1892, the vestry and porch built 1906. The stained glass window is by Kempe.

The churchyard is know for the burial of a murder victim - this from Wikipedia @ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knarsdale

This is the inscription:
All you who please these lines to read
It will cause a tender heart to bleed:
I murdered was upon the fell,
And by a man I knew full well;
My bread and butter which he'd lade,
I, being harmless, was betrayed.
I hope he will rewarded be,
That laid the poison here for me.

It was the epitaph of Robert Baxter, who died October 4, 1796. A man with whom he had a quarrel left a poisoned wrapped sandwich for him.The gravestone is now cut off.

W.W.Tomlinson in his book Tomlinson Comprehensive Guide to Northumberland makes this comment concerning the murder:

A malicious person with whom Baxter had not long before had a quarrel is believed to have been guilty of this crime yet, adds Mackenzie, It seems no inquest was held upon Baxter s body; and it is equally strange that the clergyman. should permit a malediction on one of his parishioners to be put up In the churchyard.

St George - Bells Close

Not sure if St George Roman Catholic Church is still operating as a church or if it has been assumed into the Primary School? - no sign for the church itself, just the school.

Located at Bells Close, near Lemington, these photographs were taken 5th August 2014.

The church was built in 1868 to a design by A. M. Dunn with a school attached.

Richard Lamb of West Denton was a benefactor for the building of the church. On the day that the foundation stone was due to be lain, Lamb's wife, Georgina died.
