St. Bartholomew's

A chapel is shown on Saxton’s map of Staffordshire dated 1577 which suggests a place of worship was already in existence in Blurton at that time.

The church was rebuilt in 1626 with a building looking very much as it does today.In 1750 the Rev Obadiah Lane provided £100 to build the Lane Chancel at the east end of the church.

A brick extension to the church was provided in 1822 by the Marquis of Stafford, Lord George Gower.In 1831 Blurton became a Parish in its own right separating from the Parish of Trentham.
