The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas
Named for St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors and boats

 

Originally the parish church of the town of Newcastle upon Tyne, St Nicholas church became a cathedral in 1882 when the new diocese of Newcastle was created out of the northern part of the diocese of Durham.

These photos were taken during a "Heritage Open Day" when the cathedral tower, normally closed to visitors, opened its doors to the public.
