SAHS Church Survey

The Society is considering undertaking a project to survey local churches around Lichfield and possibly elsewhere in Staffordshire from a historical and archaeological point of view.

This will be an investigation of the fabric and contents of the building, and its history and archaeology within the immediate environment of the community it has served. This will be done by observation recording and interpretation; all non-intrusive.  For more details see the January 2016 newsletter .


The Staffordshire Extensive Urban Survey (EUS) is being funded by English Heritage as part of a  national programme of surveys. The main aim of the survey is to understand the development  and  the current historic character of 23 identified medieval towns within the county. SAHS promoted this earlier, in 2012. You can download the published reports for Lichfield and for Rugeley  here. Or go here for an overview of the national programme.      


Stoke-on-Trent. The historic Enson pottery works on Normacot Road, Longton, is being given a new lease of life as the Centre of Refurbishment Excellence thanks to a £750,000 Heritage Lottery Grant to refurbish and rebuilt its four grade II listed Bottle Ovens and the American Hotel. To celebrate there will be a year-long programme of free activities.
