"Yoxall Church, St Peter, is an ancient Gothic fabric, with a nave, chancel, side aisles, and a square tower. The living is a rectory, in the patronage of the Lord Chancellor, and incumbency of the Rev JB Gisborne, BA.
Here is a Wesleyan and also a Primitive Methodist chapel, the former built in 1845.
In Wood Lane is a small Roman Catholic Chapel, with a house for the priest, Rev James Jeffries."
