The parish of Amble was formed from the parish of Warkworth in the 1860s. St
Cuthbert's Church was built in 1870, a Catholic church was built in 1879 at
Radcliffe, and later in the 1890s both Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels
could also be found in Amble. The Wesleyan chapel on High Street no longer
exists but St Cuthbert’s and the Methodist chapel do, along with a number of
other places of worship.
