The life and times of the most recent parish priest of St Joseph`s and St Wilfrid`s, Gateshead.
The doors to sacristy & confessional prove that the pulpit is on the Epistle side. Previously we had thought that the photograph had been printed in reverse
In its heyday how many clergy were attached to the parish?
Quite a sizeable clergy house too it appears.
Canon Landreth, PP in the 60s - 70s had at one time 3 curates and 2 housekeepers.
The ground floor is now a Day Centre for St Cuthbert`s Care.
Using my reading specs, and a magnifying glass, I detect the name over the oonfessional - Rev Fr L.Landreth.A much loved, and greatly respected parish priest of St Joseph's Highfield, after his Gateshead exertions were over.
