Church of St Paul, Alnwick


St Paul's ChurchSt Paul's RC Church on Percy Street in Alnwick was built in 1846 by Anthony Salvin. The church is a Grade II* listed building on the National Heritage List for England.

"Designed in the Decorated period of Gothic architecture by Anthony Salvin Esq., St Paul’s Church was built for the sum of £12,000 on the instructions of Hugh, 3rd Duke of Northumberland. When opened for worship in 1846 it provided much needed additional accommodation for the town’s Anglican community. The East Window, one of only three of its kind in Europe, was designed and created in Munich and depicts St Paul and St Barnabus preaching at Antioch. It was installed in 1856 at a cost of £1639, raised by public subscription and a contribution from the 4th Duke....

Following the combining of the parish of St Paul with that of St Michael’s, in the pre-Reformation church near the castle, the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle acquired the redundant building and St Paul’s was dedicated by Bishop Hugh Lindsay on 11th December 1982 for use by the Roman Catholic community. Artefacts including the Lady Altar and statue, the reredos depicting the Northern saints, and the Stations of the Cross transferred to St Paul’s from the former Catholic church building. The latter is now converted into the Bailiffgate Museum." (St Paul's Church Website)
