Church of St Matthew, Church Hill, Walsall - Walsall

St Matthew's was rebuilt in the 1820s by Francis Goodwin. Its soaring spire is a local landmark and its Bath stone facades stand out in the street scene. The style of the church is predominantly Perpendicular, but C13 remains survive in the crypt. Repairs to the Welsh slated nave, north aisle and north transept are needed. There is a need for repairs to the parapet gutters, cast iron gutters and downpipes; high level stonework and the large cast iron windows throughout the church.
