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. It rises lofty and elegant, holding its own amongst the tower blocks and clearly visible from the Tyne bridges. 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.
