Cross House, The Green, Wallsend

  • Description

    "This fine two storey house, which was once the local school gifted in 1748 to the village by Isabel Stewart, is a Grade II Listed building. The schoolmaster's house, now a private dwelling known as Jasmine House, stands next door. Following the dereliction of Holy Cross Church, this building was used temporarily as a church, from 1804 until 1809 when St. Peter's Church opened. During that period, the famous engineer, Robert Stephenson was baptised here on 22nd January 1804. It reverted to use as private dwelling in 1835.
