The Holy Cross medieval church ruins & graveyard stand at the Apex of Wallsend above the Wallsend Burn and aptly sit at the rear of the current Holy Cross Cemetery and less than 1 Kilometre from the replacement parish church of St Peters which is situated on the Wallsend town centre side of the new burn closes bridge.
The main Holy Cross thoroughfare, St Peters Road, leads past the cemetery to St Peters playing fields where famous Geordie footballers such as Peter Beardsley, Alan Shearer & Michael Carrick to name a few, often played football as youngsters.
The following slide show is of the steps giving access from the Wallsend burn & the Holy Cross church ruins which dates back to medieval times and the graves in these ruins date back to the 16th century.
