Welcome to this website
We are a group of enthusiasts compiling information on all of Staffordshire’s historic churches. We also put out regular news articles on the world of historic churches.
Find your favourite churches in the A – Z list of Staffordshire’s historic churches
We do a news round-up of the world of Staffordshire historic churches four times a year. To get an email alert to that when it’s published, click the ‘Get Updates From This Website‘ button, which is in the right-hand column of this page.
For those who like discussion or hearing the latest news about the county’s historic churches, please access (and please join too!) the Staffs Historic Churches Facebook group. Subjects of recent posts have been Keele Church’s Templar Window; 750 years of Draycott Church; church glass at Bishton Hall; the History of Stoke Minster… and more!
A group effort
Ninety per cent of the profiles of the county’s churches pages on this site are still awaiting information. Please help. If you have a few moments to do a profile, especially of your own favourite churches, it would be a great help if you could add any info – even just add snippets. (See Get Involved)
Please help us complete this website by adding information on churches that you know. We rely on you – historic church enthusiasts – to help us complete this mammoth project.
This site is purely a labour of love only. Any adverts on this site are placed there by the platform (WordPress) for their benefit, not ours.
About this site
The information on this website is primarily for four groups of people (but, if you’re just visiting, that’s fine too!)
~ Church-crawlers and people who support their local church – we are also hoping you will supply data about the churches that you know for this website’s pages
~ People who want to know more about a church in the locality, and want to know what to look out for when they visit it
~ People who care about the heritage of Staffordshire’s historic churches. We ask you especially to contribute information to each church’s pages. It’s too big a job for this website’s authors to do alone…
~ People who want to promote the conservation of Staffordshire’s churches.
~ Local historians who wish to add details about individual churches to these pages
Even if you do not have information to add, you can still throw in a personal opinion. On each page, there is a ‘Comments’ section at the bottom. Anyone can write a comment; you do not have to sign in, or be a ‘member’. If you have thoughts, or advice that you think will be useful, please do use this facility.
The most recent updates of information to churches’ pages are listed on this page.
