Pews seeking new homes!

Posted on: December 3rd, 2019

💥PEWS SALE REGISTRATION OF INTEREST NOW CLOSED💥 We have been overwhelmed by the positive responses to our Pews Sale. A big thank you to those who have registered their interest in a possible purchase. We will be back in touch with you directly in late January giving further information.

Newcastle Cathedral will shortly be offering for sale around 35 oak pews, most with decorated end panels.

The pews are to be removed from the Nave in late January 2020. They are suitable for home, garden (with weatherproof varnish), restaurants, hotels, churches and historic settings.

Pews will be available ‘as seen’ (e.g. with blemishes or with small pieces of wood lost towards the base) or as adapted furniture (e.g. a long pew shortened to half its length, decorative panels added at both ends, or extra stability added to the base).

Prices begin at £450-£500 and will be subject to pew length, condition and any additional work requested.

We have identified a specialist joiner to carry out renovations next year with a turnaround of 6 to 12 weeks. In January, we will invite you to select your pew on site in the Nave – first come, first served!

If you would like to register interest in a possible purchase, please contact the Project Manager, Lindy Gilliland, for more information. Telephone 0191 235 7556 or email
