Land of Green Ginger, Tynemouth


The former Congregational Church on Front Street in Tynemouth was built in 1868 by Thomas Oliver. The adjoining Church Hall was built in 1886.[1] In the 1950s the church became jointly used by Methodist and Congregational Churches. The church closed in 1973 as the congregation had declined and those remaining went to the nearby United Reformed Church and Methodist churches. In 1980 the church was converted into the Land of Green Ginger shopping arcade. The building is Grade II listed.
