St Peters Parish Church, Wallsend

St. Peter’s Parish Church in Wallsend replaced the ancient and medieval church of Holy Cross which stands in ruin at the top of the Wallsend burn. The church was restored in the 1890’s and its churchyard is home to many 19th Century headstones.

Placed just off the junction to Burn Closes Bridge and High St East, this church of England structure is one of the most historic features in Wallsend and is marked out in the skyline by the fact that it has the flag of St George flying from a flagpole at the highest point.

The pictures below demonstrate both the splendour and the history of this magnificent structure with its famous 1920’s Irish glass and ancient gothic style.

    The famous windows in S.Peter’s are Irish of the DUBLIN school. Would it be possible to correct the entry? Thank you

    1. I think you corrected it very well Rector 🙂 … maybe I just got Durham & Dublin mixed up when I first posted the information 😀 … Was the window made by the same person who designed the window at St Lukes?

        The East window in St Lukes was designed by the same company( The tower of glass ) and was based in Ireland

        1. 🙂 Thanks Mavis
