Guisborough – St Paulinus

150 Park Lane, Guisborough

An economical design of the 192os, later extended in similar vein. 

On 9 July 1927 The Tablet reported the opening of the present church by the Coadjutor Bishop of Middlesbrough, ‘replacing a former Nonconformist schoolroom in which Mass has hitherto been celebrated’. The church was extended east in 1959.


The building is constructed of artificial, rock-faced blocks imitating stone. It has a nave and chancel in one. After the 1959 extension it consists of seven bays, including the two-bay chancel. The windows are timber. Internally, the only architectural feature of any pretension is the spindly hammerbeam roof which was carefully replicated in the extension. There is, however, a fine statue known as Our Lady of Guisborough, carved in 1947 by the artist Philip Lindsey Clark.
