Church of St George, Westbourne Crescent, Edgbaston, Birmingham - Birmingham

Constructed in three separate phases to the design of JJ Scoles (1836-38), Charles Edge (1855-7) and JA Chatwin (1884-5) in a light coloured Alvechurch sandstone and a slate roof. The two southern aisles were part of the original first phase and the chancel north east vestry and tower were added to these in the second phase. The current large nave and chancel replaced the former south aisle. The roof, rainwater goods and high level stonework were repaired with a Heritage Lottery Fund Grant but more stonework repairs are needed.
