Battle Hill in Wallsend has undergone massive changes in the last few years, with the demolition of the old shopping centre (as shown below) and the building of a brand new shopping center situated on the opposite side of Battle Hill Drive, where the old Battle Hill flats once stood.
Lets hope the vandals are being targeted by the “right people” as the success of the new Battle hill shopping complex will in part depend on the visits of many potential customers from the Holy Cross.
We will of course keep this page updated when more “significant” improvements have been made.
The slideshow below (photos below that) takes you on a short tour of the small church and the entrance to the well maintained grounds.
We start the slideshow with pictures of the only entrance to Battle Hill from the Holy Cross part of Wallsend which is a underpath under the coast road, which it seems is frequented by vandals and obviously rubbish graffiti “artists”.
Yes .. help yourself for use on your personal blog, but please give us a shout out for the use of 🙂

Where Is Battle Hill?
Battle Hill is to the north of Wallsend town centre & stretches from the 1058 coast road through to the Rising Sun country park.
As the name suggests it is built at the highest point of Wallsend, however the only other link we can find, which gives us a hint as to why it is called Battle Hill is that there was once a field appropriately enough called “Battle Hill Field”.
