This church was built between 1827 and 1830 by John Dobson it is in the style of gothic, well worth a visit The Victoria tunnel runs under it ,This is also worth a visit it goes under a lot of places in Newcastle,The church is next to the civic centre in the centre of Newcastle and near to Haymarket Metro station

Following a visit to Newcastle University I realised I had a little spare time. Looking on Tripadvisor I came across a review for the statue adjacent to St Thomas' Church.
I am so glad I visited it - truly a work of art which tells a very poignant story of the Great War.
If you have spare time next time you are visiting the area, I recommend you spend some time here - and take some photo's for your collection.

This review covers a statue in the Church Grounds . Response by Sir William Goscombe John RA, is one of the best Military Statues in the UK. Sir William 1860-1952, was commissioned by Sir George and Lady Renwick to produce a statue, to commemorate, the safe return of their 5 sons from the Great War, to celebrate 50 years in Commerce and the contribution locally to raise battalions of Northumberland Fusiliers. The stunning statue comprises a number of bronze figures on a granite base. The statue is titled the Response , looking from right to left, you have the drummer boys leading the men ' to the colours' with soldiers fully equipped following. As you proceed along the line, there are civilians carrying their tools, some half in uniform others saying their farewells to their families. The statue is opposite the University , which is well signposted. This statue is very dramatic and tells a story. The church currently has a small display on the statue.
