Brotton’s New Church

Brotton's New Church

From a ‘Phoenix’ series postcard entitled “Brotton – New Church”; British History On-line states: “The new church dedicated to St Margaret was built lower down the hill-side in 1888–91. It was the gift of Miss Jackson of Hunley Hall and consists of chancel with south aisle, north organ chamber and vestry, nave of five bays, north and south aisles, and south and west porches. There is a small bell-turret on the south side between the chancel and nave. The roofs are covered with red tiles. The building, which stands well above the road and is of stone, is a very good example of modern Gothic work in the style of the 15th century.” The small trees behind the roadside wall were removed some years ago as they were deemed to be unsafe; but replaced with oaks which are now starting to grow well.
