Tyne and Wear HER(418): Bishopwearmouth rectory - Details
Religious Ritual and Funerary
The rectory was sited at the north end of Bishopwearmouth, on the north side of High Street West, in extensive gardens. Antiquarian drawings support the view that the early rectory was extensively rebuilt in the late 17th century or later, after it had suffered war damage in 1642. It was finally demolished in 1856.
