Long Description:
Extract from the "british-history.ac.uk" website:-
The high altar in the church of Hanley was dedicated by the Bishop of Worcester in 1290. The oldest part of the structure is the head of the south doorway, which is the upper part of an arch of 12th-century date, but no other portion of the fabric is of this period, and the Norman church appears to have been entirely rebuilt in the 14th century, to which period the nave and its aisle belong. The chancel, tower and chancel aisle date from the year 1674, but the nature of the work they displaced cannot now be stated. The 17th-century work is constructed in red brick with red stone dressings, and is interesting as an example of Caroline Gothic. The church was repaired in 1750 and in 1858 was restored by Street, when the roofs were renewed and new seating inserted.
