ST MARY'S RC CATHEDRAL CHURCH, NEWCASTLE

St Mary's RC Cathedral Newcastle: The exterior architecture of the church designed by Pugin in 1844, inspired by his 'Gothic Revival' approach. The spire is 222 ft high! and built later in 1860-1873 by Hansom.

St Mary's RC Cathedral Newcastle: Looking down the nave to the chancel, each aisle arcade has five pointed arches. On the right is the south aisle. The attractively and richly decorated church is beautifully maintained and please to sit in and pause for thought!

ALL SAINTS C of E CHURCH, NEWCASTLE

All Saints Church of England, Newcastle: The church was rebuilt on the site of a demolished medieval church in 1786-1786 by David Stephenson. So many medieval churches have been lost in this way, BUT,  All Saints is a handsome Georgian building whose spire is prominent from across the River Tyne in Gateshead.

All Saints Church viewed from looking up from the quayside.

 

All Saints Church, Newcastle: However, it does not seem in a good state of repair (2013) but I would love to explore the interior of the church - when is it open? The spire sits on top of a tower and both are quite richly decorated in their stonework. The church is set in a graveyard, dating back to medieval times?

 

All Saints Church, Newcastle: The entrance with its grand portico of four Greek Doric columns supporting a fine pediment.
