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.
