Parish Church of St Thomas, High Street, Dudley - Dudley

Large Georgian church built in Perpendicular style (known locally as 'top church'), designed by William Brooks from 1815 to 1818. The current church is a replacement of a medieval chapel, the remains of which are visible in the crypt. The church received a Heritage Lottery Fund Grants for Places of Worship award in 2014 for high level stonework, which was shaling away in large sections and these repairs have been completed. However, there are more repairs needed to the pinnacles and parapet walls.
