I called in here as I was passing during my lunch break, I was drawn in by the look of the ancient churchyard and the welcoming open-door policy. The first thing I noticed as I entered the church was how warm it was, unusual for churches these days, and this is Newcastle, with temperatures below freezing outside. Secondly I noticed... More

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. It is very quiet inside the church, the noise from the traffic seems far away. A very atmopheric place. This parish church has still a churchyard with old... More

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. The interior is very well preserved and contains notable features such as a large font cover and stained glass windows. Definitely worth visiting if you have any interest... More

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.

St andrews is a really old church & churchyard going way back in centuries, the interior is all original with the tiled aisle floor, some of the headstones dat way back & it's really spooky passing on a dark night when all the trees are blowing with the wind, it's closeby stowell street which houses an original good length of...

We had a very informative chat with a chap who worked in the church, although I forget his name. He knew his stuff about the church. He let me ring the bells, and took us up into the bell tower to see the bells. He showed us the gap used to feed the ill or lepers. The church was were... More
