Church of St. Bartholomew, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea


The Parish Church at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea dates from the 13th century, thought to be on the site of an earlier Saxon chapelry established by the monks of Lindisfane. It has a prominent position on the headland named Church Point. The church underwent a major restoration in 1845. In the past St. Bartholomew's was subservient to the smaller parish church of St Mary's Church at Woodhorn, but  St. Bartholomew's became the official Parish Church when St Mary's closed in 1973.[1] St. Bartholomew's Church is a Grade I listed building.

St Bartholomew’s Church, Newbiggin-by-the-sea is a Church of England building in the Diocese of Newcastle.

History

The church dates from the 13th century and by the eighteenth century had become a ruin. The nave and chancel were restored in 1845, and a new chancel arch and organ chamber were built in 1898 by W.S. Hicks. The north aisle was rebuilt in 1912.

The church is noted for its dramatic headland site.

Organ

The church had a two manual pipe organ by Nelson and Co dating from around 1910. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
