World famous scholar and historian the Venerable Bede lived and worked in Jarrow 1300 years ago. He wrote the first history of the English people.

The Chancel of St. Paul’s Church survives from the days when it was a chapel within Bede’s monastery in the 7th Century. An original stone plaque can still be seen inside the tower recording the dedication of the church on 23 April AD 685.

Next to the church are the remains of the Benedictine monastery of the Middle Ages, which was re-founded on the site of the original Saxon monastery.


Today the little church and its monastic ruins sit in the heart of industrial Tyneside, but while working on this drawing I could sense thirteen centuries of history all around me.

Each A3 (297x420mm) print is individually signed and numbered. Price £25.00 (approx $50.00 USD) inc postage worldwide

The original A2 (420x594mm) indian ink drawing is available to purchase. Please email me for details.
