St. Andrew's Church is on Newgate Street beside the Town Walls. The Newgate was nearby, as was the Newgate Gaol. The church dates from the 12th century, although there is evidence of an earlier building here, and some of the stones used to build the tower is reused Roman material.
An 12th Century church, which has a very interesting graveyard (the unmarked graves of executed 'witches' lie here - a kind caretaker gave me some print outs with details of those hanged). Key names associated with Newcastle's history are buried here. The church itself has a beautiful interior and a lovely atmosphere
