About The Mount


The Mount is a former Methodist chapel in Eighton Banks sat alongside the Bowes Railway Line in Gateshead. This wonderful building is owned and supported by Lamesley Parish Council. It became a community centre about 40 years ago and has been at the heart of the community ever since.

It is run by The Mount Community Association who are a group of volunteers from the area. The Association look after the building and fund raise to support the running of the centre. Its aim is to provide a place for the community to gather and be the heart of the local community.

Regular events run in the hall but the Association also puts on special events throughout the year. These can be found on the What's On page.

Thinking of having a party? Why not have it at The Mount? We've got a beautiful garden area with plenty of space for a bouncy castle and our semi-resident sheep.  With room hire only £15 an hour, it's the perfect spot for an event or party.
