Church Tower north of Church of St John, St Johns Hill, Shenstone - Lichfield

This C13 derelict tower represents the standing remains of the church replaced by the adjacent C19 building. Previous proposals to repair and find a new use for it have not come to fruition for assorted reasons. Following preliminary discussions regarding the availability of repair grants, a high level access survey funded by Historic England in 2017 has enabled comprehensive repair estimates to be obtained. Discussions between Historic England, congregation representatives, the Parish Council and other interested parties are ongoing to agree a scheme for its repair and re-use.
