Church of St Mary the Virgin, Woodhorn


St Mary's is the former parish church in Woodhorn, Northumberland, near Newbiggin by the Sea. The church is one of the oldest in Northumberland and incorporates Saxon, Norman and Gothic-style architecture. The nave and west tower are Pre-Conquest, the north and south aisles are 12th century, whilst the eastern arches of arcades and chancel arch are 13th century. Parts of the church were rebuilt by B. & J. Green of Newcastle in 1843.[1] The church was declared redundant in 1973 and was taken over by the local authority and was used as a museum and cultural centre. The building was later put up for sale. The church is Grade I listed.
