St George's - fragglerocks
The altar table is a solid block of marble ten feet long and carved with great skill. The veins in marble make it notoriously difficult to work, with the constant danger of the material splitting along the veins. It is a tribute to the local craftsmen employed that they could produce such deep and detailed work. The altar was displayed at the Newcastle Royal Jubilee Exhibition of 1887. (The pulpit and altar were part of Messr. Emley & Sons stand).
