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. Discussions are underway to help secure the church's repair and future use.
