This is certainly one of the oldest church structures in England. There is ample signage around the inside and outside of the building to guide you about the early Anglo Saxon structure,expansion of the monestaries, and later destruction. The staff inside the church are anxious and available to answer your questions.

Visited St Paul's Monastery today after a trip to the nearby Jarrow Hall. The ruins of the old monastery are great to walk around and there is plenty of signs telling you information regarding the history of the monastery.

Inside the church itself there are some fantastic stained glass windows and other features.

Staff who were on site were also very knowledgeable and friendly too.

To stand in the spaces where Bede lived worked and worshipped has to be a moving experience for any English person. our earliest history was written here and here the English language was nurtured. The Anglo Saxon chancel and stained glass are worthy of world heritage status. Combine this with a visit to the neighbouring Jarrow Hall museum which provides detailed exhibits and information on Bede and his times. It includes a recreation of an Anglo Saxon farm.
