St Luke, Blakenhall - Wolverhampton, City of

Gothic Revival church by GT Robinson of Leamington in polychromatic brickwork erected in 1860. The decorated spire is a local landmark in the Blakenhall area. Closed as a church in 2017 the building is now in use as an antiques centre. Rainwater goods remain in poor condition with leaks affecting the brickwork and wall structure. Most roofs show evidence of slipped or broken slates with the abutment of the north aisle with the nave being a particular problem. The full-time use of the building is welcome but lack of repair leaves it in poor condition.
