History

This church was built, as a cost of £3-4,000) in 1841/2 in what was then a working-class village, and consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Worcester (in which diocese the church was then located), on Friday, August 19th 1842. The spire was struck by lightning in June 1936, and was restored in the following year in Staffordshire stone. At 87 feet, the spire is 8 feet taller than the original one. The burnt-out clock from the tower was never replaced.

These bells have always been hung dead for chiming in the church that was built in 1841/2. They replaced a single Mears bell of 1842, 3-0-17. They were installed to mark the Golden Jubilee of the church on 19th August 1892. They were cast without canons, hung on deadstocks and are sounded by means of tolling hammers attached to the headstocks.
