West End Stories: St James’ Heritage & Environment Group

  • Description

    West End Stories is a programme of events, talks and community exhibitions about West Newcastle upon Tyne. It has been developed in partnership with St James’ Centre for Heritage & Culture in Benwell. St James’ Church in Benwell has a really interesting history, in some ways in reflects the history of Newcastle’s West End. Judith Green talks about St James’ Church and the graveyard, the history of St James’ Heritage & Environment group and plans for the future. St James’ Heritage and Environment Group is an independent voluntary organisation set up in 2010 to support the restoration and improvement of St James’ Church building and churchyard in Benwell, Newcastle upon Tyne. The group also set up the St James’ Centre for Heritage & Culture based at the church. The group runs events and activities intended to explore and celebrate the history of the west end of Newcastle. They have also produced a series of local history booklets and heritage trails which are available free of charge at drop-ins and events in the Church. You can visit St James’ Centre for Heritage & Culture every Tuesday 12pm – 4pm https://stjameschurchnewcastle.wordpress.com/ https://goo.gl/maps/LKaAF
