St Mary's RC Church, Hexham

"For the period 1721 until 1827, Hexham had two Catholic chapels, a Dominican chapel on Battle Hill and a secular chapel in Cockshaw. In 1827, it was agreed that there would be only one church to serve the town. Father Singleton was appointed as the parish priest and the foundation stone was laid on 22nd April 1828. He seems to have spent much of the next two years travelling in search of subscriptions to pay for the church. St Mary’s Parish Church was opened on 22nd September 1830 by Bishop Penswick, the Vicar Apostolic, who sang the Pontifical High Mass...." (St Mary’s Catholic Church Website).
