St. Mark and St. Cuthbert, South Shields

St. Mark and St. Cuthbert, South Shields

My wife and I were married in this rather modernistic church in Quarry Lane, South Shields, 21 years ago, it sits on the edge of what was once a stone quarry, now largely an area of public recreational and parkland. The garden in the foreground is a favourite place to pose the bride and groom for photographs on their wedding day, so long as the photographer chooses the correct background, behind me are a number of open football pitches!

The original St. Mark’s  church in South Shields was in Laygate, for local readers it was where the children’s playground is in St. Mark’s Avenue now, and the original St. Cuthbert’s church was in King George Road on the edge of Temple Park , it was a wooden building and it was sadly destroyed by fire in the 1960s.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28 mm lens, 1/350 second, f8, iso 200
