Coseley

 

Coseley (West Midlands) Christ Church

 

The village of Coseley developed in the 19th century to become a mining and industrial centre at the heart of the Black Country. Originally in Staffordshire, Coseley became part of the Borough of Dudley following local government reorganisation in 1974. The ecclesiastical parishes were transferred from the Diocese of Lichfield to the Diocese of Worcester in 1994.

Christ Church was built by public subscription, on land given by the Earl of Dudley, and consecrated in 1830.
The architect was Thomas Lee and he designed a large church with aisles and gallery. The Lady Chapel was added in 1910 during the incumbency of William Spencer who used his own private means to enhance the church.
