Church of All Saints, New Shildon

All Saints Church was built 1868 -1869, designed in the 'Early English style' by J.P. Pritchett.[1] It was the parish church for New Shildon. The last service in the church was conducted by the Bishop of Durham in November 1998. The building has stood empty ever since. Planning permission was granted in 2015 for conversion to residential use, but this has not progressed.[2] The former church is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
