"St Bartholomew's Church, Penn, was repaired in 1765, when the tower of brick was erected, and again in 1799, when the chancel was rebuilt of brick. It was thoroughly repaired in 1845, when 150 additional sittings were obtained, making the total number 492.
The Bishop of Lichfield is patron of the vicarage, in the incumbency of the Rev. Henry Moore, MA, of Eccleshall."
