City Tour - St. Thomas to St. Thomas

About

Meet at Newcastle end of Swing Bridge.  Finish at St Thomas’ Church, Haymarket.

From the site of the Chapel of St. Thomas on the medieval bridge to its early Victorian replacement at Barras Bridge, this walk visits several sites of religious significance.  On the way, you will hear the story of an agile bricklayer, of boilers used for soup as well as prison laundry, a secret chapel and a city centre church moved brick by brick to Byker.

The route takes a steady, but steep climb which may make it difficult for people with limited mobility.
