Churches (91) : St Augustine (Old), Rugeley

This is the original parish church of the Staffordshire town of Rugeley dedicated to St Augustine of Canterbury. The church was replaced by a new church on the opposite side of the road in the 1820s, some materials from the old church were used in the new. The original church dates from the 12th century. The church is in ruins with just the West tower, the chancel, a North chapel and a four bay arcade joining them.

The chancel and North chapel are in a good condition and was used as a Sunday school. The tower and chancel date from around 1300CE.
