Wolverhampton St George


The Parish

St George's parish Wolverhampton was created in 1834 from the town's principal parish (St Peter). Wolverhampton is one of the major towns of Staffordshire and is located in the southwestern part of the county. Wolverhampton is roughly 15 miles northwest of Birmingham and 10 miles south of Stafford. The parish of St George is centered in the northeastern part of the city and was commissioned as part of the plan to increase church going amongst the inner city poor. The parish was the first of many created from St Peter but the only one to be commissioned during the period of the transcript. Wolverhampton nowadays is part of a vast West Midlands conurbation which stretches from the M54 in the north through to the M42 in south and east, it is held to be the capital of the Black Country. The parish of St George is sited at around 150 metres above sea level in the northeast of the town, it is totally urban in nature with main roads passing through to Wednesfield and Willenhall and also the Wyrley & Essington canal. The parish population was large but as it was not an ancient parish totals in census are included in St Peter.

The Church

St George's church is located, appropriately enough, in St George's Parade. The church is no longer a place of worship for the Anglican faith indeed it has become a Temple of Mammon having been converted into a supermarket. The church was built in the late 1820s as part of the "Commissioners' Church" movement. The church was built in a classical style and has Italianate features being a mixture of Tuscan and Venetian motifs. The steeple is its most impressive feature. Unfortunately the church has suffered the indignity of corporate styling and now sits amongst standard supermarket flower beds and brick-weave pavements in a pedestrianised shopping area.
