A ST GEORGE in the North East – JESMOND will ring for ST.GEORGE

Part of the North East’s city of Newcastle is JESMOND who each year rings out its 8 bells in celebration of England’s Patron Saint.  It was dedicated to ST.GEORGE in 1888 and is a remarkable example of the high standards of the country’s Arts and Crafts Movement.  All the interior is furnished with brilliant tiles, mosaics, carving and many other beautiful attributes including a wonderful statue of St. George.  Listen out for its bells and go and see this special church on April 23rd.

Tracery screen at the Baptistry worked in Caen stone was installed in November 1890.
