Description:Two capitals from St. Mary's Church pictured in the garden of Milford Hall. These architectural fragments were removed from St. Mary's Church, Stafford during its restoration by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1840-1844. They were returned to the church during the 1930s.

The Collegiate Church of St. Mary is the parish church of Stafford. The present building is a mixture of genuine medieval and the work of Sir George Gilbert Scott, who restored the church in 1841-1844 in what he imagined to be its original style. The octagonal tower of the church was once crowned with a spire which fell during a storm in 1593. This photograph was taken by local historian Mr S.A. Cutlack of Gnosall.
