Seghill Holy Trinity. © 2000 NDFHS.


Building to a design by Benjamin and John Green, architects of a number of important buildings in Newcastle during the Grainger/Dobson era, although Holy Trinity has no special features. Notable ministry from the Reverend Charles Osborne, D.D. over the turn of the century. He was a disciple of the Tractarians and in consequence was persecuted by the Ecclesiastical Commission on Discipline. (Osborne was the author of recognised works on Pastoralia for the clergy, and a biographer of some of the Tractarians disciples.)

Broadly Catholic tradition. Extentions in 1981. [The Newcastle Diocesan Gazetteer (1982) page 23.]
