Church of St Mark, Broad Street, Stoke-on-Trent - Stoke-on-Trent, City of (UA)

This Commissioners' church was built c1830 and consists of a nave with galleries and a west tower; the chancel was added in 1868. The clock stage to the tower is subdivided by blind pointed panels with engaged shafts secured by ferrous metal fixings and several of these have failed and fallen to the ground. Holding repairs to secure defective plaster ceilings above the galleries were carried out in 2017 and water ingress is suspected to be the cause of the problem. The congregation are now in the process of exploring a grant application to the Heritage Lottery Fund to assist funding repairs.
