St Andrew's Church, Shotley, Northumberland

  • Description

    "Perched on Grey Mare Hill (293 metres high), St Andrew's was built in 1769 on the site of a much older church. Inside, it is a simple and appealing cruciform church, with sturdy stone ribs over the crossing. As well as some fine eighteenth-century headstones in the churchyard, there is also the fantastic domed structure of the Hopper Mausoleum, erected in 1752, with obelisks above and statues in carved niches on the sides...."
