Holy Cross, Wallsend, Tyne & Wear, England
1950s postcard of the Holy Cross, Wallsend, Tyne & Wear, England.
The Church of the Holy Cross dates back to 1145AD and was built by the monks from Jarrow Priory using Roman stone taken from the nearby Hadrian's Wall. The church was used for public worship until 1798 after which time it became derelict, the stone foundations and grave were restored and a steel railing erected in 1909 to protect the site. Source
