St. Mary's Heritage Centre and its collection

St. Mary's Heritage Centre

St. Mary's Church, which sits high above the River Tyne close to The Sage Gateshead, reopened on the 16th December 2008 following a £1.2m transformation, funded by Gateshead Council, the European Regional Development fund and the heritage lottery fund, into Tyneside's newest visitor attraction. The interior of the Grade 1-listed church has been completely stripped out to return it as far as possible to its former state, and is now open to the public with a programme of exhibitions and activities including a new family history section focusing on the church and the nearby area.
