St. Mary (R.C.). Peter Morgan. Previously listed as St. Bede, Diane Ross has suggested that it might in fact be St. Mary (R.C.) just off Wearmouth Bridge. I've been unable to find photos of either church on the web, but its description in Pevsner is consistent with this being the case. A photo from Alan Blacklock confirms it. Interior view, Mike Forbester.

Clearly marked as a church on the OS map (at NZ 394 593), this building had no indication of use. Steve Bulman. Lou has been in touch to advise that it's now the Fulwell Grange Kindergarten, and she thinks it was a Methodist Church. Can anyone supply more details? James' photo shows it with a business sign added.
James Murray.

Cemetery Chapel at Ryhope Road Cemetery. James Murray. Another view, Norman Cummings (2014), who also advises that this is usually referred to as the North Chapel. Grade II listed. A short distance away is another building, which Norman not unreasonably describes as the South Chapel, though he has been unable to find confirmatory evidence that this was its designation. It may have had, or was intended to have, a spire. Another view. Both Norman Cummings (2014),
