A medieval church building of important architectural interest, filled with an interesting  collection of monuments that are a fascinating heritage resource, describing people and events of importance to the history of Newcastle city and the region and so containing a wealth of interesting stories just waiting to be discovered: The collection contains work by nationally and internationally-reputed sculptors and craftspeople, including glass artist Leonard Evetts, the nineteenth-century woodcarver Ralph Hedley, and the sculptor E. H. Bailey who was also responsible for Grey’s Monument.

The monuments illustrate many of the ways in which contemporary local, regional and national culture has been shaped. Look out for mermaids, wild men, Roman senators, romantic ladies or even a precious medieval stained glass portrait of Mary and the infant Christ.
