A truly beautiful, thrilling, atmospheric place. The art, the architecture, the stained glass ... it all has to be seen to be believed.

One of the most beautiful churchs in England. Built by Augustus Welby Pugin, who also decorated the Houses of Parliament.

Everywhere you look there is exquisite design and decoration. The opulence overwhelming. The detail and overall impact unbelievable. A must for your itinerary when visiting Staffordshire.

Gloriously decorated church using top grade materials. One of Pugin's very best commissions. The tiles, the stained glass, the fixtures and fittings are a joy. Don't forget a £1 for the meter to switch the lights on!
