Description:St. Austin's Church was built on the site of an old friary of the Order of St. Austin, on Wolverhampton Road. The first chapel opened in 1791. Its oak stalls came from Lichfield Cathedral and the fifteenth century stained glass windows from Belgium.

The new church (pictured) was built on the site of the old in 1862. Part of the old church and priest's house can be seen on the right.

A turret and bell replaced the planned spire, to reduce building costs.
