A day in the life of Newcastle Cathedral, Lindy Gilliland, the Cathedral’s Project Manager, writes on 11/06/20

I couldn’t help but notice the massive size and thickness of 18th century ledger stones recently lifted, cleaned and positioned in their new locations in the north aisle. The row is filling up rapidly and it will soon be time for the Stanhope Black paving to be fitted around these giant memorials. No ledger stone is true in line, several twisted in profile, and the masons use all their skill to align them together, keeping the joints as close as possible.

The Cathedral’s project, Common Ground in Sacred Space, gives us the opportunity to support students, volunteers and paid staff in heritage related careers. Over the last year, we’ve offered training in heritage project management, schools’ and public engagement, and collections and archives work. Now we’re delighted that we’re able, through funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund, to support a young school leaver employed by our contractor, Historic Property Restoration. We think it’s crucial that young people are able to learn practical skills and heritage crafts which are fast disappearing; talents upon which the future preservation of our magnificent cathedrals and other historic sites depend.

Researching Newcastle Cathedral’s Ledger Stones, Alice Massey, the Cathedral’s Project Support Officer, writes… on 20/07/20

I have since learnt that most of the 130 ledger stones currently visible on the floor of the church are in the western arm. This was a deliberate decision taken in 1783 to remove floor level burial markers from the eastern arm. It is clear that little care was taken during the process of moving and in many instances the stones were greatly reduced in size to fit new locations, often to distant parts of the building. Sadly, a number have become illegible as a result of people walking over them or the surface of the stones splitting and losing the top layer.
