9/4 Church of Our Lady
and St John the
Baptist and No.75


Roman Catholic church and attached presbytery. 1823 with later additions
and alterations. Stuccoed brick with concrete tile roof to church and
clay tiles to presbytery. Moorish Gothic style. Aligned north-west to
south-east. Church: 3½ bays divided by buttresses with 2 pairs of
pointed windows under curved triangular hoods to each bay; plain
horizontal and toothed brick bands above and below windows and also to
eaves; plain gabled 'south' porch in first bay from 'west', 'Ritual
West' front: 3 pairs of pointed windows (as on 'south') underneath
castellated parapet with 2 bands of narrow, pointed blank arcading;
C20 flat-roofed entrance porch in front and to the 'north' a catslide
roof extending full length of church. Interior: the only features of
note are the original plastered and painted ceiling and the 'western'
gallery; all the other fittings and furnishings are late C20.
Presbytery: attached to north-west; 2 storeys, 3 windows to 'south'
with central one blind, floor band; entrance to rear. The complex
presents a somewhat bizarre impression, reminiscent of North Africa or
southern Spain, not common in north-west Staffordshire. B.O.E., p.63.
