A soaring tower and spire gracing the skyline of Newcastle
The body of the church has gone, but R J Johnson's soaring tower and spire still grace the skyline west of Newcastle.

Built in 1878, the tower forms a memorable piece of design and construction, the brainchild of a versatile northern architect and well worthy of finding.
