Wallsend - St Peters Church

St Peter's was built in 1807-09 to replace on a new site, the medieval church of Holy Cross ( the ruins of which can still be seen - a twelfth century church with a seventeenth - century porch). In 1892 the church was 'gothicized' by W.S.Hicks:the interior was gutted, a new roof and windows installed and the spire removed.
