Description:The pathway leading to the entrance of St Chad's Church, Hopwas. The trees have since been removed. The church was opened in 1881 on lands donated by the Rev. T. K. Levett of Packington Hall and Mr Herbert Dean. The architect was John Douglas of Chester. The Vicar of Tamworth, William McGregor, had previously sought to replace the smaller church of St John as being too small for the congregation but this had been opposed by Sir Robert Peel as he stated that the population size did not warrant it.
