Longton St John

"Lane-End Church, or, as it is now called, St John's, Longton, was founded and endowed by John Bourne, Esq, in 1764, but it was rebuilt in 1792, and enlarged in 1827. It is a neat and spacious brick structure, and has a tower with a peal of eight bells.
The benefit is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of trustees, and incumbency of the Rev William Ford, MA."
[From History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire, William White, Sheffield, 1851]


    A transcript of the Monumental Inscriptions of St John has been published by the Birmingham & Midland SGH.
