Lanchester – All Saints

  • Description

    "An interwar Gothic revival church by a German architect, with a later bell tower. The window tracery seems to be inspired by that of St Andrew’s church, Roker. The sanctuary is panelled in marble originally from the Regent Hotel, London. The church makes a positive contribution to the Lanchester Conservation Area.The mission was founded in 1901 from St Michael’s, Esh Laude. That year, a temporary tin church was erected, which had previously served St Nicholas’ Asylum, Gosforth. A convent (now the presbytery) was built beside it, followed in 1905 by the school building. In 1926, the present church was erected at a cost of £4,500. The architect was Theo Korner (or more likely ‘Körner’), originally from Germany. Initially the church had no tower; this was added in 1955, when a Lady Chapel and new sacristies were also built....."
