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 to the north roof slopes was completed in 2015 through funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme. Funding to enable a second phase of repairs to the south roof slopes, and to areas of high-level stonework, is being pursued. The site is located in the Bishop Auckland Heritage Action Zone.
