Where Is This It Doesnt Look Like Much.
This is Saint Mary’s Chapel and it’s in Jesmond in Newcastle, and you may be wondering why is it called Jasmine all right You probably weren’t wondering why it’s called Jasmine, but the story goes that it is a contraction of Jesus Mount. So why is it called that well because someone had a vision of Jesus on the mount you might think but no they didn’t Apparently the lady had a vision of Mary and child the Virgin Mary so why isn’t it called Mary child land or something but it’s not It became Jesus Mount Jesmond supposedly anyway. Saint Mary’s Chapel that’s what we’re supposed to be talking about um. This is a very significant building.
This May Look To You Just Like
a load of tumbledown old ruins, but there was a time when this was a famous landmark. In fact, this was one of the three greatest pilgrimage sites in the whole of Britain. We know this because in 1479 a Rector who we don’t seem to have a name for Erector in Yorkshire left a will in which he left money for pilgrims to go to the three main sites in Britain, Saint, Paul,’s, Canterbury and here Saint Mary’s Chapel in Jesmond. So why was this so important was it tremendously Rich because a lot of these pilgrimage sites became really tremendously Rich well it’s not very big it’s certainly an awful lot smaller than its two Rivals um, but it is also thought that Pilgrim Street, which is one of the main streets right the way through the center of Newcastle, today is called Pilgrim Street because of all the pilgrims coming to here so um what was so special about this tiny little chapel we. are told that the pilgrims took their boots off in Pilgrim Street and walked to Saint Mary’s Barefoot Now I would love to be able to tell you exactly why this place was so important in the Christian era.
The Trouble Is I Cant And As
far as I can tell the truth is lost in the midst of time. So I have to guess now Jasmine Dean, which is just down there has many Springs in it. In fact there’s another one which I’ll be showing you later which is just up there um and some of these were volcanically hot, which is reasonably rare and springs are quite often Pagan shrines. So a Dean with a load of Springs in it sources of water sources of Life springing mysteriously from the earth um lots of big nice trees in the area. You can imagine that this could be.
A Place Of Pagan Significance, Its Very Easy
to imagine that and there was a Christian policy that was endorsed by the Pope himself to hijack if you like Pagan’s sites that were already established as popular and rather than destroy them and try to replace them with rival sites elsewhere, which would be quite tricky because if you don’t have a tradition of Christianity in an outpost of Empire like like Britain I’m talking about the Roman Empire , then you’ve got no established sites to build on so it’s much easier to take the established Pagan sites and just hijack them. Just you know get rid of the obvious Pagan iconographies but do a bit of a scattering of the Holy water bit of blessing put up a couple of crosses and hey Presto. You’ve got a site that’s already established in people’s minds and in the infrastructure of roads and the whole bit um ready to go so you’ve got a you’ve got a tourist attraction that’s more likely to be commercially and sorry and spiritually successful than trying to start from scratch and Pope Gregory. The first a sixth century pope. He wrote to a chap called Melitus, who was one of the early Bishops of London, telling him no no don’t Don’t destroy the Pagan sites take them over speak a bit of holy water around it’ll be great trust me.
Im The Pope And It Seems
that there is a continuation of this tradition of hijacking religious sites that were set up by other people because this is a Christian site and yet I’m not sure that this massive Crystal covered with a bit of pottery here with a heart on it and lots of flowers and little ribbons and so forth is is necessarily endorsed by any of the the local Christian clerics. There’s um something of a new age. Following I I think that has started doing its own hijacking. This was a Pasina Pacino are little alcoves holding water basins for ritual use. Now this Chapel has had a suspiciously frankly suspiciously large number of owners.
We Do Know That It Was
in the possession of the king. Because EdwardNK] sold this to Newcastle The town. It wasn’t a city then in 1549. now how did. Did he end up with it well.
Dont Forget That His Dad He Was
the sickly son of HenryNK] you know the famous one with all the wives who’s also famous for for the dissolution of the monasteries. When you set up the Church of England. He said Oh that seems to be a very rich Monastery. I I think the crown should own that and so he became very rich in grabbing for himself lots of Catholic Church property and presumably that included this and so that would make sense why he was able to sell it to the town in 1549 for presumably a reasonably fat profit. It had several owners after that and it was returned by Lord Armstrong in 1883, who was a massive landowner in this area just over there is the Armstrong.

Armstrong was a man who made his fortune inventing all. All sorts of things, many of which were used in Warfare the Armstrong cannons and hydraulics and and so forth cranes are amazing Guy should do a video about him perhaps another day, but anyway he was a major land area in this land owner in this area, and he was able to sell it back to the town in 1883 um, but those custodians of it um of course continue after that including what was the town done since well it has conserved for the for the future of this otherwise tumble down thing the road that they don’t forget the the Victorians quite liked things to be tumbled down. They would even contrived ruins because they were romantic. Whereas today we want to preserve for future Generations.
The Information That Is Held Within
These Stones so what am I looking at here well this looks to me like. Some sort of window because well look you’ve got a window surround there and it just all stops there’s no scar down here. I don’t see any line here Nothing went down to the bottom. So this wasn’t a doorway so okay let’s say it was a window, but you wouldn’t carve this nice bit of stone and put all these nice lines here and just for it just to end but where’s the sense in that so presumably this is broken a bit like this bit here is clearly raggedy and broken and yet we’ve got this smooth line here. All these Stones here conform with this end here, making it look deliberate as though this window just sort of stopped there, but I don’t think it did looking here.
I Immediately Spot With My Trained Archaeologist.
I conservators modern concrete this wall has been consolidated and this is. This is not ancient water. This is this is modern concrete so this is holding it all together. It is cementing it and protecting it from the weather.
So What Im Fairly Sure Has
happened here is that modern conservatives have got a load of rubble from the area and have just contrived this bit here and and just made it look like a finished thing and this matches what I see the other side now then this up here is what I would call an ashlar yes it’s a stone but ashlar specifically is one that has been worked. It’s been chiseled nicely into a block shape which is It takes a fair bit of time. Don’t forget he’s doing it with a hammer and chisel. So a fair bit of effort went into creating all these big ashlars and yet look at the mess here This again. Modern conservatives concrete so this has presumably been botched together using Stones taken from other places this Stone here for instance, I’m pretty sure is not in situ in situ as POsH Archaeologists speak for in the position that it was originally intended to be um so I think this is a bit of a botch job.
Now These Big Ashlars Here They
look like the outside of a building to me. You would you generally wouldn’t bother to go to all that trouble if you were then going to plaster over the top and yet this wall to my left as you see doesn’t have the the the well-worked ashlars. There’s a little bit of work, but they’re not anything like as finished and consistent as those there so what that tells me is that that was once the outside of a building, so that bit is older and this bit has been added on later so what’s this bit for then well. I I’m speculating here entirely. This is conjecture but I think these were for the POsH seats now we’re missing an awful lot of the building possibly even most of it what we’ve got left is quite small but it’s thought that this wall here extended right the way across this road here and that the end of the building was over there somewhere next to that building With this steam coming out of it which I noticed does look a little bit church-like I wonder if that’s deliberate now this is a Norman Arch above me you.
See A Really Big Arch And Thats A
Grand Arch. You can see it’s Oh it must have been well over 15 feet tall, and it’s got some carving on the front of it. Making the making it look a middle a bit fancy and so that’s a characteristic of a Norman Arch and so that would have been a Roman style arch not coming to a point like a later Gothic Arch, but a rounded one um and the size of it shows that this was clearly a a chapel to be reckoned with we have also a big carved capitals here on these on these columns. Although I have to say that I’d like to think that you know with a taking a bit of care.
I Could Do Better Than That Its Thats
not very symmetrical or impressive, and what is slightly strange to me is that. It’s fellow on the top of the opposite Capital doesn’t match. You can see that it does have surviving detail, but it’s quite clearly different from the other one but and perhaps the asymmetry just didn’t bother them anyway so we’re we’re looking eastwards this way so the altar would have been this way.
