St Edmund's Chapel: Early C13 five-bay building, with gable end to road having
elaborate design of seven stepped and moulded lancets under dripmoulds with nail-
head below, Nos 2, 4 and 6 only glazed. Beneath, is the multi-moulded central doorway
with three orders of nook shafts flanked by upper and lower pairs of trefoil-headed,
multi-moulded blank arches. South return has single lancets with plain chamfered
heads and nook shafts; stepped buttress bay divisions.

To North the Community centre, formerly Church, of 1837 by John Dobson, related in
design: 5 stepped lancets in gable end under relieving arch and dripmould.
Projecting porch leads to North vestry with undercroft. Octagonal turret with
short stone spire. This part now divided into two floors for community use but
architectural features are retained.

At south side of forecourt a good, late C16, stone doorway with short fluted
pilasters, entablature and flattened Tudor arched entrance, moved here from front
of court. It was the entrance to Gateshead House, built on site of St Edmund's
Hospital by William Riddell.
