Church of St Michael with St Lawrence, Avondale Road, Byker - Newcastle upon Tyne

Parish church built in1862-63 to the design of WL Moffat. A north aisle and vestry were added in 1936. The building has suffered from roof leaks, general dampness and heritage crime. Urgent repairs were completed in 2013 with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme. Further funding was awarded in 2017, through the Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme, for a supplementary phase of repairs to enable the building to dry out. Those repairs are due to be completed in 2018.
