That’s a good point.
The original question was, ‘Which of all the buildings still standing in Hebburn, do you think has had more people cross its threshold, than any other?’ The answer to that would probably be St. Andrew’s Institute and School House, erected in 1871.
My reply about St. John’s church, was in answer to Eddy’s new question, of, ‘Does anyone know what is the oldest public building still in use today.’ The answer might be St. John’s church, depending on how we look at it. Although the west wing was built in 1790, it didn’t come into public use until 1887, when it became St. John’s church.
I would determine a church as a public meeting place, in which many other denominations can visit.
