Churches (82) : St Stephen, Redditch

The parish church of St Stephen in the centre of Redditch was built in 1845-5. It replaced an earlier chapel in the then-fast growing town (Redditch was a centre for needle manufacturing). The church was built from coursed sandstone rubble with an ashlar dressing and is in the decorated style.

The church has a North West tower, a five-bay aisled nave and a three bay chancel. The church was extended in 1893 which added chapels and a vestry.
