Church of St Augustin - North Shields - List Entry

  • Description

    "Church of St Augustin is listed at Grade II for the following principal reasons: * Architect: it is a rare example of the highly regarded Scottish Architect, Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, in England. * Architectural interest: designed as a replica of St Andrew’s Episcopalian Church in St Andrews, it is accordingly of good design and well articulated in Early English gothic, although adapted for its site and English taste. * Materials and craftsmanship: good quality materials are used throughout the interior, which have been skilfully blended; there is a high level of craftsmanship in details such as the font and carved organ screen * Intactness: although not finally completed until the mid C20, the church displays a high level of external and internal intactness. * Stained glass: the memorial East window is a striking example of the work of Martin Travers, considered one of the most distinguished church furnishers and stained glass painters of the C20...."
