Surrounded by busy streets and right into the center of Newcastle, you will find a lovely old church. It is the oldest church in Newcastle, some parts date from the 12th century.

Visited as part of Heritage Open Days. Both the church itself and the surrounding churchyard are of great interest. The yard even has a section of Newcastle's ancient town wall in it.

An 12th Century church, which has a very interesting graveyard (the unmarked graves of executed 'witches' lie here - a kind caretaker gave me some print outs with details of those hanged). Key names associated with Newcastle's history are buried here. The church itself has a beautiful interior and a lovely atmosphere.
