Church of St Anne, Market Place, Bishop Auckland - County Durham (UA)

Church of 1846-8 by William Thompson, on the site of a medieval chapel. Tall aisled nave with clerestory windows, gabled south porch and distinctive west belfry. Chancel with organ chamber and vestry. A first phase of repairs (north roof slopes) was completed in 2015 with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England. Funding to enable a second phase of repairs (south roof slopes and high-level masonry) is being pursued. Discussions are on-going regarding an internal flexible layout. The site is in the Heritage Action Zone and received a Cultural Recovery Fund grant.
