Church of St Luke, Claremont Road, Newcastle upon Tyne - Newcastle upon Tyne

Completed in 1890 to designs by Oliver & Leeson, St Luke's has a short nave with south porch, paired transepts and a chancel with north vestry and south chapel. It is constructed of red brick with steeply pitched roofs of Welsh slate, stone window surrounds and a west belfry. A scheme of external repairs was completed in 2014. Proposals for the repair of the interior are being developed to enable the main body of the church to be brought back into use for worship. Whilst these proposals develop, the adjoining parish hall is temporarily being used for worship.
