Views of St. John The Baptist, Church Road, Egglescliffe c1981.
It is claimed that there is an underground tunnel from the church to the Friarage in the grounds of Yarm School. It is alleged that it was originally used as an escape tunnel for the monks…
A view of the gateway leading up towards St Cuthbert’s Church, Redmarshall.
This shot of the Central Methodist Hall shows the builders just as building work was completed. I was married in this church in 1968 and at that time there were a set of gates and an iron fence to the right of the main building, the annex to the right was the church hall, if you were to walk past the hall you would be in Chiltons Avenue with two prefab classrooms belonging to the South Modern School.
Continuing across Belasis Avenue and along Chiltons Avenue you would bring you to ICI’s West Gate, Chiltons Avenue continued through the ICI works and reappeared at the East Gate. The imaginatively named New Road was built as a replacement for Chiltons Avenue. The church in no longer there, in fact there is very little or nothing left of the original East Row.

This old Church on Thornaby Village Green dates from the 12th century. I attended a service there this month, it was my first view of the inside – beautiful. I remember when the church area was surrounded by a high hedge and gravestones.

There have been a few recent posts on Picture Stockton about the previous Mayors of Stockton and whilst I was in the Parish Church I was surprised to find these ‘honours boards’ just inside the main entrance. They are well worth a look but check the church opening times first as it is not always open and even then only by the side or rear entrance but certainly worth a visit.
