St Mary the Virgin Erwarton

St Mary’s is the Parish Church in Erwarton, one of the four villages making up the Shoreline Benefice on the tip of the Shotley Peninsula.

The church is always open during the day and you are very welcome to come in and look around or to sit and pray and find some peace and quiet. St Mary’s has had some well know visitors in the past, doing exactly that. When Anne Boleyn was in need of some breathing space whilst married to Henry VIII, she used to come to Erwarton Hall and to our church. Legend has it that after her death her heart was buried in the crypt under the organ in Erwarton Church.
