Long Newton St Mary


The Parish

The parish of Long Newton (usually rendered as Longnewton today) lies in southern County Durham not too far from its border with neighbouring Yorkshire. Long Newton is located 4 miles southwest of the industrial town of Stockton on Tees and sits just off the A66 road which connects Stockton with Darlington, indeed the A66 was formerly routed through the village but now passes to the north. Long Newton, as its name somewhat suggests, is a linear village which stretches for over a half mile either side of what was the main road. At the time of this transcript farming, chiefly arable, was the mainstay of the economy although some quarrying of the local stone for building also took place. Modern developments have come to Long Newton, the Stockton to Darlington railway passes through the southern portion of the parish whilst barely 3 miles south is Teesside International Airport, one of England's major regional airports. Long Newton is drained by the nearby Coatham Beck which joins the Tees to the east of Stockton and thence to the North Sea. Long Newton is sited at around 40 metres above the sea in gentle terrain rising only slightly to 60 metres or so within a couple of miles. Durham parishes are rather large in extent and Long Newton was no exception, it covered around 4,000 acres and would have supported a population of close to 300 parishioners. Like most of Durham Long Newton is not mentioned in Domesday Book which has scant coverage north of the Tees.

The Church

St Mary's church sits on the northern side of the old main road, Darlington Road. Whilst there has been a church on this site since at least the 13th century the present church is the third incarnation of St Mary and was built in the 1850s at the bequest of the local landholder the Marquess of Londonderry. It is difficult to say much about a church described by Pevsner simply as "towerless and of no interest". Clearly he was not impressed by the simple nave, chancel & western bellcote that is today's church. Darlington Road is broad and street parking is easy to manage, the churchyard, well screened by trees, sits behind a recent local stone wall with metal gates for entry. The churchyard has no obstructions to photography.
