St. Peter’s Church, Brotton

An image of the old St. Peter’s Church in Brotton, demolished about 1958 – all that’s left now is the plinth on which it stood – (near to the graves of its priests).

A little more information has come to light in an extract from a booklet “Know your Parish” it states:- “When St Margaret’s was built St. Peter’s became the mortuary chapel, this chapel was cleaned & restored in 1901 but was demolished later. When the workmen removed some large flagstones near to where the altar had stood they discovered a tunnel which had been bricked up some time in the past. The registers commence in 1641, baptism to 1881: marriages to 1901 and burials to 1956?
