Quarry Bank


Anglican, Christ Church.

Built for the Church Commissioners in 1844. Of yellow brick in the Early English style, the architect was Thomas Smith of Stour bridge who also designed nearby St John’s, Brockmoor. 
Quarry Bank received parish status in 1844 and was within Lichfield Diocese until transferring to Worcester in 1994. The civil parish was in Staffordshire until 1966 when, with Brierley Hill, it became part of Dudley.
