A visit to Bloxwich

The present Church of All Saints in Bloxwich was builtc.1791-4 with major alterations and extensions made in 1875-7, although it is possible that an earlier church once existed on the site. The church was originally dedicated to St. Thomas of Canterbury but was rededicated after the alterations in 1875.

 

Sadly it was locked so I couldn't have a look inside.

Superbe église. Ce doit être encore plus beau lorsque les arbres ont leurs feuilles.
Bill Phillips: Yes I would think it looks lovely in summer Martine

The bane of my life - locked churches - Bill
Bill Phillips: It is annoying but sadly understandable. However, it does rather take away the point of the place

Why rededicated? A fine church with a large green around it.
Bill Phillips: I don't know Perhaps they thought St Thomas was a controversial character

Now that is one solid structure.

And as for Bloxwich, I'm going to have to look on Google Maps to find where it is..
Bill Phillips: Near Walsall

It's a fine view of fine church. It has a very substantial tower.

Nicely framed..beautiful complimentary colors.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Bonnie.
Very much like a church in our capital - truly similar.
Bill Phillips: What a coincidence. You should post a picture of it sometime
A fine looking church for one built solely from bricks. The only time I've heard of Bloxwich was at work with Hanson because they have a premix concrete plant there somewhere.
Bill Phillips: I wonder if they still do Brian
Austere and impressive, it inspires fear.
Bill Phillips: I imagine that was the idea Claudio
