Tyne and Wear HER(693): Whickham, Church of St. Mary

  • Description

    "In its earliest recorded form the church consisted of a 4-bay aisled nave with two identical arcades, chancel, west tower with pointed barrel vault, and south porch. It seems to be agreed that the chancel arch (possibly rebuilt) and south arcade are Norman or Transitional, i.e. late 12th century, and the tower 13th century or later. The building has undergone many alterations; there was a restoration by Dobson in 1819...."
