"The parish Church, Holy Trinity, stands on the east bank of the Penk, at a considerable distance from any of the hamlets, two miles ESE of Stafford. It was rebuilt, with brick many years ago, except the ancient stone tower, which still remains.
The vicarage is in the alternate patronage of the Rev C Inge and JN Lane, Esq, and incumbency of the Rev. Thos Leveson Lane, MA, of Wasperton, Warwickshire for whom the Rev HB Scougall, BA, officiates.
Walton Church, St Thomas, is a handsome structure in the early English style, and was built in 1843 as a chapel of ease to the parish church."
[From History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire, William White, Sheffield, 1851)
The churches of Acton Trussell and Bednall were chapelries in Baswich parish and details can be found on the Acton Trussell page.
