NZ2560 : St Helen, Low Fell

taken 18 years ago, 3 km from Gateshead, England

St Helen, Low Fell
St Helen, Low Fell
St Helen's, Low Fell, was consecrated in 1876 to serve a new parish and
built at the cost of Edward Joicey (colliery owner); this area was an
upcoming suburb where the wealthy industrialists and merchants of
Newcastle and Gateshead were building large houses. Today the area
appears little changed.

The church is in a "mature" churchyard (ie. you can't see it for
trees!) which, being an urban location and postdating the Burial Acts of
the middle of the 19th century, is not a burial ground. It is a very
well maintained and, I was told, well attended church.

It has four windows in the Nave by Morris & Co, three of them from
designs by Sir Edward Burne Jones.
