Holme Eden – St Paul’s Church
Location : Warwick Bridge
Grid Ref NY 473364
St Paul’s Church at Holme Eden, Warwick Bridge, was designed by John Dobson of Newcastle upon Tyne, a versatile architect, who was regarded as an ecclesiastical architect par excellence.
The exterior of the church is virtually unchanged from Dobson’s original building. It is a very simple design in red sandstone with a slate roof, and consists of a nave, a small chancel with an apse at the east and, a spire 110 feet tall at the west end over the entrance porch, and a small vestry at the southeast corner. The building reflects John Dobson’s concern that the design should be functional, with simple layout, with no pillars or other obstructions.
There are stained glasss windows at the east and west ends, by John Scott.
