Church of St Mary, Woodhorn, Newbiggin by the Sea - Northumberland (UA)

Former parish church with surviving pre-Conquest elements. Significant rebuilding work took place throughout the C12 and C13 before a major rebuild was carried out in 1843-44 by B & J Green architects. The church closed as a place of worship in 1972 and was subsequently used as a museum and workspace for artists. Structural movement has been identified in some parts of the building and other repairs are required.
