Description"t Helen's, Low Fell, was consecrated in 1876 to serve a new parish and built at the cost of Edward Joicey (colliery owner); this area was an upcoming suburb where the wealthy industrialists and merchants of Newcastle and Gateshead were building large houses. Today the area appears little changed. The church is in a "mature" churchyard (ie., you can't see it for trees!) which, being an urban location and postdating the Burial Acts of the middle of the 19th century, is not a burial ground. It is a very well maintained and, I was told, well attended church. It has four windows in the Nave by Morris & Co, three of them from designs by Sir Edward Burne Jones."
