Our Lady and St Cuthbert Catholic Church in Highfield Lane, Prudhoe. This is the Church that was moved from Prudhoe Hall in 1905. The photograph taken by Father Paul Zielinski in April 2011 shows the fine proportions of church and presbytery, and the well-kept grounds. The Bell rings the Angelus at noon and 6 p.m. every day, calling people to prayer.

The ornate stencilled ceiling of the sanctuary of 1870, that was incorporated into the church of 1891 and re-erected in Highfield Lane in 1905. The story goes that John Liddell offered the workmen a substantial bonus of £20 to complete this work without causing any damage to the intricately decorated panels.

Repairs and restoration undertaken between October 2004 and March 2005, in order to hand on to future generations a place of worship to be proud of.
THE COST OF CONSERVATION OF OUR LOCAL HERITAGE.
