Description"This was the first Catholic church built in Consett, in 1857. It was built to serve the large Irish Catholic community which had settled in Blackhill. The men came over to work in the steelworks and to escape the potato famine. The architect was Matthias Dunn, who designed the building in Gothic revival style. The clock tower wasn't completed until 1884." Photo by Robert Graham, 2017.
