From the church website:-
The parish church of St Benedict Biscop is a Grade 2 listed building and is a landmark building in the Wombourne Conservation Area. Records show that a church has existed on the present site for more than a thousand years. Restored and rebuilt several times in the intervening period, the present building is constructed of pink sandstone with a plain tiled roof. It was rebuilt to the design of the prominent Victorian architect G. E. Street in 1867, yet still retains a small amount of medieval masonry in the north wall.
